We're back out at the drainage ditch for a second 12-hour deployment. Here are the results:

Some observations: We had a freak torrential rain, so yes, the conductivity really was effectively zero during this deployment, you can even see when most of the rain came down by the sudden acceleration of depth to the left. Also, the rapid dip at the end is the device coming out of the water and sitting on the porch to dry.
