Dive Team Places Monitoring Equipment Despite Snowfall

One of the most inspiring aspects of MOP is the dedication of our volunteers. This past Sunday our dive team walked through snow to get to the dive site to get in and place temperature sensing I-buttons. When meeting them I told them never to contact me to testify pm their behalf at a mental competency hearing as this seemed crazy to me. I was cold just watching them.


The I-buttons are low-cost devices that can record water temperature every four hours over a year. We are curious to see what kind of variation we may see as the readings may be impacted by tides, flows from the Charles, depths and location. We learned about the technology at a Coastal Environmental Senxing Networks conference at UMass Boston this Summer. This portion of the Project is being spearheaded by Rich Bradshaw.

    The headline "Dive Team Places Monitoring Equipment Despite Snowfall" highlights the dedication of a dive team in navigating challenging conditions, despite adverse weather. However, the article lacks specific details about the purpose of the equipment, its location, and the significance of the operation. Including more context and quotes from the dive team members could enhance the narrative. The article's brevity is beneficial, but expanding on the broader context, such as the overall mission or project that required the placement of monitoring equipment, would provide a more comprehensive narrative. In conclusion, while the headline piques interest, adding more details about the purpose of the equipment, the impact of the snowfall, and personal insights from the dive team would enhance the article's depth and engagement for readers.
