TODO during this summer, 2009

  • Testing H2O Unit "End to End"
    • Use EcoWatch with 650 and sonde and optional GPS for ad-hoc sampling, link to instructions
    • Test data flow from sonde to database via cell phone. Readings log and then correctly labeled graphs of all the parameters.
    • Add the board's temperature to the data that is collected, uploaded, and graphed (see the eeapnode software for an example).
    • Add the battery's voltage to the data that is collected, uploaded, and graphed.
    • Test what happens WRT the board booting (with phone and sonde attached) when the battery is brought back from 0 charge to full charge.
  • Identify/configure software for batch download and real-time download/mapping of eTrex datastream on Zoey.
  • Springwood Install
    • Design/build float
    • Reliability
    • Rename sensors to Springwood
  • Weather station
    • Reading values, inserting into database
  • Portable testkits
    • X-ray fluorescence (XRF) - link to inventory, link to instructions
    • Thermal imaging camera (TIC) - link to inventory, link to instructions
    • Sonde and 650 - link to inventory, link to instructions
    • Netbook - link to inventory, link to instructions
    • Differential GPS - link to inventory, link to instructions
  • Keck Data Schema + Interfaces
  • Wind @ miller
