Learn how to use the EM38-MK2 data logger program with the Archer Field Computer to conduct a ground conductivity survey.
The EM38 is typical used for general soil sciences and agricultural study. By measuring relatively shallow ground conductivity, the operator can determine apparent clay content, salinity, and moisture in soils which helps scientists understand more about soil content and helps farmers plant crops in the appropriate soils. The EM38 has an effective maximum depth of about 1.5 meters, or about 5 feet.
EM38 Equipment and Case
Within this course are step by step guides to each EM38-MK2 data logger menu. These menus include Survey Setup Menu, Logger Setup Menu, Set GPS Port Menu, Set Output Port Menu, Display Options Menu, Monitor /Log Menu, View Files Menu. Some basic calibration and functionality checks are included as well to ensure the user collects the most consistent and accurate data.
Instructions concerning the DAT38MK2 program are also available. The DAT38MK2 program is a computer program for the office or home computer that allows the user to view, convert, and interpret EM38-MK2 Files. Learn how to install the DAT38MK2 program and transfer files from the Archer, and convert these files into the proper post-processing file format. The DAT38MK2 cannot read EM38 data logger files without conversion. Further Dat38MK2 lessons will be added in the future to assist with post-processing.
Note: EM38-MK2 Assembly can be found in the Geonics Equipment Assembly Course.
