I have a datalogger CR800 and an AVW200. So are there anyone use the Geokon 4500 Standard Piezometer to measure the water depth of an open waterbody (e.g Lake or river)?
I have used other similar probes. With short cut you can create a program quickly. What are the other issues? Is the pressure range adequate for the depth you want to measure? Is the cable long and ventilated enough to have a correct correction of the measurement according to the barometric pressure?
I used the standard VW piezometer from Slop Indicator in the past, I just want to know someone is using the ones from Geokon and it is fine so I will have an alternative choice.
That sensor has definitely been used before for lake depth. If you don't already have a sensor, I suggest asking the manufacturer for a recommendation. The sensor manufacturers can tell you which particular model is best for your application.
If the lake changes water level over a big range, or changes rapidly, a bubbler is an option you should consider.
