One of the primary factors affecting how high a stream rises after a rainstorm is how saturated the soil is on the hillsides of the catchment. A single sensor alone cannot offer insight on varying terrain with differing soil characteristics.
Placing multiple soil moisture sensors in an area provides a far clearer picture, allowing data to be gathered with greater granularity.
The DLN Single Valley Pack includes 8 soil moisture units plus a rain gauge – all for the price of a single unit from other companies.
The units report in wirelessly as often as every 30 minutes. No dataloggers. No site visit required.
