The most accurate method of obtaining changes in water level is to compensate for atmospheric pressure fluctuations using a Barologger Edge, avoiding time lag in the compensation. The Barologger is set above high water level in one location on site. One Barologger can be used to compensate all Leveloggers in a 20 mile (30 km) radius and/or with every 1000 ft. (300 m) change in elevation.
The Barologger Edge uses pressure algorithms based on air rather than water pressure, giving superior accuracy. The recorded barometric information can also be very useful to help determine barometric lag and/or barometric efficiency of the monitored aquifer. The Barologger Edge records atmospheric pressure in psi, kPa, or mbar. When compensating submerged Levelogger Edge, Gold or Junior data, Levelogger Software Version 4 can recognize the type of Levelogger and compensate using the same units found in the submerged data file (Levelogger Gold and Junior measure in feet, meters, or centimeters). This makes the Barologger Edge backwards compatible.
