Description :
High freqency field measurements of hydrochemical parameters (Ca, Mg, K, Na, Cl, SO4, SiO2) and physical parameters (electrical conductivy, temperature and water levels.

-Sept 2010-sept 2012 : 4 springs with automatic water samplers (major elements), 4 CTD probes (OTT CTD) for electrical conductivity, temperature and water level).
-Sept 2012: the monitoring of two of these sources was sustained as part of SNO OMIV with the same protocol.

Data acquisition methods :
  • Observational data :
    water : An automatic sampler is used to collect water for major cations and anions analysis. The measurements are made every 4 days for the water sampler.
    continous measurements of electrical conductivity, temperature and water level with a CTD probe (OTT) The measurements are made every 30 minutes.
