It has been a tough field season for us.
Sometime over the last few days, one of our depth loggers was swept away by the Mara. I had last downloaded data from the logger on November 1st, so we lost about three weeks of data from the Purungat Bridge. This is the third depth logger that the river has taken from us this season...all in different locations and secured within the river in different ways. The erratic flows and large wildlife in the river continue to make it an extremely challenging environment.
The Mara...is a tough river to work on. This area...is a tough place to work. We've got...the Research Blues.
If you happen to be in Tanzania and you see one of these floating by, do please grab it and give us a call.
