Moderately wet drizzle this am, but only ~15 mL of sample at UCSC. System came on at 0445 this am. Still on at ~10:00. I am thinking of modifying to a more upward facing system.
Surprised by ~100 mL of clear fog water (with one small fly). Was cloudy but dry at my house so surprised to see there was wetness at UCSC. System cleaned and blank taken. Many strands broken.
Another drippy night and another sample not collected. Program froze probably due to bad RH sensor. Intermittent. I replaced it with a used one, but will wire up another one and replace soon. Otherwise, triggering process appears to be working normally.
Visibility sensor arrived today.
System opened at 0530 and turned off at 0830 (same as on 5/30/16). No sample present in spite of heavy drip and thick fog at my house, which is about 400′ lower in elevation. Odd. System triggering normally. System cleaned and blank taken and acidified.
Treated to about 50 mL of very clear fog water, collected at 9:00, clouds beginning to clear. Taken home and refrigerated within 1 hour and acidified in the lab the next day 5/31/16.
Acid cleaned the strings on 5/20/16
System opened up last night due to some light rain, but no sample collected. System rinsed in place with DI and doors closed.
