2019 Hydrology Project Report

The Carroll Cave Stream Flow Project is complete for 2019. The file linked at the bottom of this post contains all of the raw data, the processed data and full year graphs in both PDF and JPG format.

The data shows two major floods in the cave. One was in early May and the other in early June. The May flood reached just over 8 feet in Thunder River at the ladder, with almost 18 feet below Thunder Falls. The June flood reached about 3 feet at the ladder and 13 feet below Thunder Falls. read more

2011 Hydrology Project report

I was roaming through some old files today and discovered the full-year data from 2011 for the stream flow project.  This data was not posted to the web site.  In the interest of completeness I am adding it.

The ZIP file linked below contains three kinds of files.  The .hobo files are the raw data exactly as it comes off the loggers.  In order to use these files you must have a copy of Hoboware Pro software. 

The TXT files are plain text in a format that can be imported to a spreadsheet.  The PDF files contain graphs of the data.
