Groundwater hydrology is an interpretive science: we can't observe the aquifers directly so we must interpolate and extrapolate our understanding from water-level measurements from observation wells. Stevens has expertise for measuring both water quantity and water quality.
Over the past few decades, soil monitoring has become increasingly important. Environmental factors such as climate change, dwindling water resources, and threatened habitats are driving the need to monitor the environment and implement better policies to protect it. Many natural processes in the environment are driven by or in some ways related to soil hydrological processes. Monitoring soil moisture conditions provides important information for the protection of, and in the understanding of local and regional water resources.
One of the world’s largest meteorological networks, SNOTEL, is employing soil moisture sensors to monitor the impact of soil water content on stream flow forecasts By Keith Bellingham, Soil Scientist & Geochemist / Certified Professional Hydrologist Download a PDF of this article Many complex political, social, environmental and scientific challenges impact water resources. Snow telemetry…
Stevens recently sponsored the 2018 MOISST Workshop: From Soil Moisture Observations to Actionable Decisions, which was held June 4-7 in Lincoln, Nebraska. This workshop provided a unique opportunity for leaders in soil moisture research and development to come together in an interactive workshop format to exchange ideas and develop collaborations. This was the eighth consecutive…

Evapotranspiration (ET) represents the loss of water from the Earth’s surface from the combination of direct evaporation and plant transpiration. ET is usually expressed as a rate such as inches per day. Knowledge of ET is important for irrigation scheduling but it is also an important factor for other land use applications such as septic…
Weather conditions are often an integral element in water resource and irrigation management applications. Weather parameters are frequently used in understanding and modelling environmental applications that are dependent on water resources. Stevens provides top quality and industry leading weather sensors that are easily deployed into an integrated environmental monitoring and control system. Here is an…
