Hi Enga

I have been doing similar research, but using probes rather than data loggers.
I have recently completed a years monitoring of the construction phase of a new straw bale building in the UK, from measuring the bales in the field, through to completion and first six months occupation.
It might be interesting to compare data when your research is complete – Where is your building?

Subject: [GSBN] data loggers

Hello All,

Wanted to check in with any of you that have experience with data loggers in ongoing monitoring of temperature and humidity. Ideally, I will be imbedding dataloggers/sensors in the walls of a strawbale structure as it is built and then be able to monitor temperature and moisture movement within the wall from the plastering process through several years of use. If anyone is familiar with specific brands or types of equipment that either works particularly well or should be avoided, I would appreciate hearing about it. Economy will unfortunately be a factor as funding for these monitors seems to be getting more limited each day.

Thanks for any and all input.
