GW Scientific Caddo Lake Hydrology Studies: Station GCL01: Air and Lake Temperature

GW Scientific has established a preliminary long-term station (GCL01) at the Shady Glade Resort marina, adjacent to the Shady Glade Cafe. The station is solar powered and uses a Campbell Scientific Inc. CR1000 data logger to measure and store data from a variety of sensors. The below air temperature measurements are made with a Campbell Scientific 107 temperature sensor that is installed in a 6-plate solar radiation shield. The below lake temperature measurements are made with a Campbell Scientific CS451 pressure transducer that also measures temperature and a GW Scientific temperature profile probe that measures lake bed temperatures at several depths using YSI thermistors.

The CS451 sensor is mounted 3 inches above the lake bed, and the lake bed temperature sensor is located 5 centimeters below the lake bed. The measurement location is by the "U" water road post by the Shady Glade Marina.
