Not all monitoring stations are housed in protective enclosures. This water level and meteorological recorder is attached directly to a pier. On the far left is the acoustic sounding tube and sensor. Rising up from the piling is a solar cell, and above that, a satellite transmitter. The remainder of the recording electronics are housed in a small weatherproof box (open).
