EXO and Storm3: Real time public data made easy.

A demonstration with several water quality vendors was initiated this week. The powerful combination of the EXO platform and Waterlog Storm 3 data-logger have been deployed in unison at various sites around Georgetown, South Carolina.

The auto-detection of the EXO sonde with the Storm 3 data-logger made it a breeze to get real time data onto a public website. You can view the live streaming data right now on this Storm Central Public Portal. Simply click the blue droplet icon to see specific parameters.

At the lighthouse site data is set to log every 15 minutes internally, and at the marina site real-time data is transmitted every 15 minutes.

The installation process was very similar to the one demonstrated in our recent webinar:

Tim Finegan, Product Manager at YSI, who oversaw the installation process had this to say, ¬†“It is a very dynamic site influenced by large tidal influences. Note the large salinity changes in blue. We have already seen large algae events containing a lot of cyanobacteria.”
