(Please refer to "Getting Started Manual for Participants" at emolt.html  for details)

1)  Secure the probe (already  programmed to collect data and inserted within a film canister  to protect it) with  tie-wrap and deploy at a site:

2) For each haul of the string that has a temperature probe attached to one of its traps,  fill out one line of a spreadsheet (using a package like Microsoft Works or attached worksheet) as in the examples below:

3) After the probe has been deployed for a few months,  contact your  association representative (either  Patrice farrey, Bonnie Spinazzola, Dave Casoni, or Clare Grindal).  They will help you  a) get the data off the probe, b) verify you have documented the deployment properly, c) reinitialize for another deployment, and d) give you instructions on how to conduct this operation yourself. You may also contact Jim Manning (508-495-2211,  at any time with questions and schedule data analysis/discussion sessions.
