Placed a string of hobos in Mendenhall Lake attached to a buoy.
Approximate anchor location is N 58 25.953' W 134 32.810'.
Approximate buoy location is N 58 25.938' W 134 32.810'.
Hobos are at 20, 40, 60, 80, and 90m from the top, as suggested in Ellie's report.
Lake depth is ~60m. The line is ~120m long. I should find a shorter line.
Obviously, the bottom hobos are not contributing much to the profile.
Attached the hobos with wire. This was a good idea. Need wire cutter and a needle-nosed pliers or two.
Zip ties are probably a bad idea.
If a mote is added to the buoy, it will probably be out of range from the peninsula station.
Could use two buoys with thermistors to make a mote network (fun fun).
I don't know if the leaded line I used will kill me, but the tentacles I discovered growing from my elbows might be a positive indicator.
The buoy is not yet labeled.
