LimnoTech will be at the 2018 State of Lake Superior Conference (SOLS18) at Michigan Technological University (MTU) in Houghton, Michigan, October 9-12. The conference is hosted by the International Association for Great Lakes Research (IAGLR). SOLS18 will bring together professionals and stakeholders from a range of organizations to discuss research, policy development, management, and education focused on Lake Superior and surrounding watersheds.
Ed Verhamme and Anthony Aufdenkampe will be manning the LimnoTech booth at the conference. They will also run a free workshop titled “EnviroDIY – Low-cost Sensors for Environmental Monitoring” in the GIS Teaching Lab in GLRC (GLRC B003) on Friday, October 12 from 8-11:00 am. This workshop will walk through the EnviroDIY technology platform, which enables new low-cost sensors to be built and deployed with off-the-shelf electronics. Anthony will give an overview of the history of the project and how scientists and citizens without a formal science background can deploy cost-effective and robust monitoring networks at a fraction of the cost of traditional technology. Participants in the workshop will get hands-on experience with assembling a station, programming, and data management.
Drop by and talk to Ed and Anthony about EnviroDIY and the work we are doing in data management, lake monitoring, watershed management, coastal concerns, water resources modeling, ecosystem management, emerging contaminants, climate resiliency and adaptation, and other Great Lakes topics. We hope to see you there!
