Bret installing tide gage under pier

 

Three tide gauges were recently installed (and recovered) in the northern portion of the Mobile Bay estuary as part of a hydrodynamic model study of the area. The HOBO water level data loggers were installed at Lap’s Grocery and Grill in Choccolatta Bay, at Meaher State Park in Ducker Bay, and in Sardine Pass at the 5 Rivers Delta Resource Center. The gauges were placed in protective PVC housings and secured to existing pilings using stainless steel straps. The gauge elevations were surveyed into NAVD88 using an RTK GPS in the field.
