These factors should be examined if perserverence with this system is m.:tintained. An attempt to standardise this equipment should also be made since various componentry has undergone a degree of evolctionary change. Iii) Cherryville Logger. The memory capacity is 64000 bytes. This represents the storage of 20000 data pairs. This logger has been used in hydrographic logging and claims to have battery capacity of 6 years on tipping bucket pluviometers. 4.4 Implementat:ion 4.4.1 Infrastructure A nuwber of aspects need to be considered In establishing the infrastructure for this system. These are (i) EquipIlent Requirements section 9 has identified the minimum specification for further equipment purchases, however the nomination of particular suitable products is yet to be made. All loggers and transducers trial led do not meet the specification requirement although it may be considered that a workable system could be developed if this equipment were adopted. Therefore, unt:il such time that the required equipment lS identified, the existing suite should be utilised to facilitate establishment of general procedures and for staff to develop familiarity with this technology. The format of any future system is not perceived to be widely different and trainE,d staff should be able to adapt \vhen this particular system is superseeded. In thet.?st pumping above stated purpose, the a 20m vented transducer, context, with consideration to the Mindata 3500 series logger servicing and the Kent flowmeter should be utilised for ';Jumped bore monitoring. The second transducer
