New CreekCam Installed

The first law of Marine Science is that electronics and saltwater don’t play well together. Anyone who has owned a boat or deployed an electronic instrument near the ocean can attest to this truth.

UGAMI’s CreekCam, installed in 2016, became a victim of the corrosive effects of salt spray and died a slow death last summer. But a new camera was installed at the same location this week and is set to transmit an image every 10 minutes. As before, the latest image is always displayed on the Current Conditions page: https://gce-lter.marsci.uga.edu/public/app/conditions.asp. Archived images can also be viewed and downloaded.
