Ray Alford and Scott May - Qld Dept of Natural Resources and Water , 22 August, 2008

Real Time hydrologic data collection offers many benefits over the well established “Near
Real Time” systems currently utilised by many Australian Water Authorities. This paper
outlines the methods employed by the Qld Department of Natural Resources and Water to
establish a small network of gauging stations that report in real time using Campbell CR1000
loggers and Maxon ModMax NextG modems.
