Waterbot Data Update

We are just getting preliminary data from the Waterbots we installed in the park last week, but we are already seeing some interesting trends in the data. The above chart is a graph of Conductivity (red line) and Temperature (blue line) over the last week. Conductivity is represented as microsiemens per centimeter (the amount and rate of electricity that can pass through the water), and temperature is represented as 10 times the actual degrees Celsius (to make it graph on the same range as conductivity).

The conductivity fluctuates daily, with temperature, and you can see that on the evenings of the 21st, 22nd, and 23rd, conductivity reached the same low level. Interestingly on the 24th the conductivity dipped slightly less than the previous days. This could be the result of rain on the 24th (a little over a tenth of an inch) that may have washed various inorganic salts into the creek. Keep tuned in to the blog where we will periodically post the data we are collecting in and around the Park.

  1. The graph at top appears blank (all white) for me. No curves visible. I’m running Firefox 11.0 browser on a Mac. The same in Safari 5.0.6.

  2. Thanks for the heads up Paul! The glory of Google fusion tables is that it automatically updates linked graphs, the downside seems to be that if you mess up the location of your graph it disappears. I don’t have access to the blog to fix the link, but it should be up and running first thing tomorrow morning!
