Description: Abstract - The proliferation of commercial non-programmable data loggers in the past five years has done little to increase sediment sampling efficiency in remote locations. Recent advances in microelectronics have encouraged the development of commercial, low-power, programmable data loggers at reasonable cost. Although some facets of hydrologic data collection may lend themselves to fixed-time sampling intervals, sampling efficiency in many applications can be improved using a programmable data logger. For example, controlling the collection of suspended sediment with a probability sampling program may involve generating and sorting random numbers, testing input parameters, and activating a pumping sampler.
