Abstract
Water quality monitoring is essential to human health, ecological stability, and scientific research but remains hampered by Large, expensive, inflexible, and sometimes unreliable systems. To address these problems, an open source, flexible, and inexpensive sonde was designed and created capable of meeting research needs, along with a buoy system to support its use. A new optical UV based sensor was created to help measure phosphate ion levels. Together these technologies could further ecological research and help safeguard ecosystems.
