Description

Using engineering principles, computer-aided-design software, and three-dimensional printing technologies, a device containing a single Arduino, analog pH sensor, and digital temperature sensor will remotely collect data while left on a stream to analyze the water quality and health of a tributary to the Chesapeake Bay. Specifically, Arduino Uno, a microcontroller board designed to take an almost any input and give a simple output, will be programmed to read the pH data as the input and light a LED based on the pH received as the output. Both the pH and temperature data will then be stored onto the Arduino. After a week of collecting data, the Arduino will then be retrieved, and the data collected and analyzed. This process will be conducted monthly to monitor the long-term effects of pH and temperature on the health of the tributary.
