    Low level measurement of VOCs and Terpenes close to the sea and the Landes Forest

    It has been established that organic aerosol (OA) makes up for a major fraction of fine particulate matter in all region of the atmosphere. This fraction accounts approximately for half of the total PM2.5 dry mass.1,2 Primary OA is directly emitted in the troposphere from anthropological and natural sources whereas secondary OA (SOA) is formed in-situ in the atmosphere from the oxidation of biogenic or anthropogenic gas-phase precursors and subsequent partitioning of the less volatile products into the particle phase. The current number is that, on a global scale, SOA would represent around 60% of the overall OA.3 However, recent global mass-balance estimations for the removal of volatile organic compounds (VOC) suggest that this number could under-predicts SOA production.4 Recent field measurements in urban locations are also in support of a larger share, indicating that SOA is the dominant fraction of OA, with amounts considerably 20 greater than models predictions.

  • Measurement solution for siloxane measurement in land-fill gas via FTIR

    What are siloxanes?

    The generation of electricity from municipal digesters and land fill is of increasing interest, as the biogas generated is a form of renewable energy. Organosilicon compounds are often present in products such as shampoo and cosmetics, as well as industrial products and lubricants, and they move into land-fill. These volatile compounds find their way into land-fill or digester gases as siloxanes.

  • Biodiversity Monitoring

    In many sectors with large impacts on land such as mining, oil & gas, and construction, it is common for sustainability leaders to assert that they will have ‘no net loss’, or a ‘net positive impact’ on biodiversity. These promises regarding organizational biodiversity performance are proving extremely difficult to test. Our Ecosystem and the Normative Biodiversity Metric give sustainability leaders a chance to measure, analyze and communicate the success of these promises.

  • Air monitoring equipments for soil contamination monitoring

    Previous land uses or accidental spills can result in Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) contamination of soils. Volatile and semi-volatile compounds can then permeate through the soil and may persist for several years. This contamination can be traced and measured using our Soil Probes in conjunction with our VOC sorbent tubes. Soil probes are also useful in checking the effectiveness of remediation actions. This monitoring technique provides a cost-effective identification of hazardous gases.

  • Groundwater Monitoring for Water Management

    Fresh water is one of the planets most critical resources essential to all land based life It is also one of the planets most rapidly diminishing resources. Conservation and protection of existing supplies and the rehabilitation of degraded sources are one of the most urgent problems facing humanity today.

  • Groundwater Monitoring for Construction Sites

    All construction affects groundwater and a water management plan will be required. From deforestation to urbanisation, from holes to heaps and dams to drains, they all have an affect on the groundwater. Deforestation causes an increase in the rate of run off of rainwater resulting in lower percolation of precipitation into the soil and a consequent increase in soil erosion leading to slope instability, hence land and mud slides. The increased rate of run off can cause small streams and large rivers to rise and flood in a shorter time, but also to dry up sooner. These conditions cause great difficulties for subsistence farmers in developing countries. Urbanisation also causes faster run off because of the non permeable surfaces such as roads, roofs and car parks. This also creates drainage problems that can lead to contamination and erosion of natural water courses.

    Ambient air quality monitoring at airports

    To measure the ambient air quality at airports is a challenge. The monitoring site needs to be representative for background levels and not dependant on changes in local traffic. A large number of gaseous components need to be measured with high accuracy and high availability. The OPSIS DOAS system provides the user with a fast system that gives high availability at low cost. The impact of aircraft take-offs and landings can easily be followed on-line. The OPSIS system can also monitor fugitive emissions from other sources at the airport.

    Water Testing for Environmental Applications

    Keeping the water in our lakes, rivers, and streams clean requires monitoring of water quality at many points as it gradually makes its way from its source to our oceans. Over the years ever increasing environmental concerns and regulations have heightened the need for increased diligence and tighter restrictions on wastewater quality. Control of water pollution was once concerned mainly with treating wastewater before it was discharged from a manufacturing facility into the nation`s waterways. Today, in many cases, there are restrictions on wastewater that is discharged to city sewer systems or to other publicly owned treatment facilities. Many jurisdictions even restrict or regulate the runoff of stormwater — affecting not only industrial and commercial land, but also residential properties as well.

    Determination of water-soluble forms of inorganic cations in soils, clays, peat, wastewater silt, activated sludge, and bottom sediments

    INTRODUCTION

    The content of water-soluble forms of inorganic cations (ammonium, potassium, calcium, sodium, magnesium) is one of the substantial characteristics in agrochemical, land reclamation, and sanitary assessments of soils (arable, hayland, pasturable, forest nursery soils). The cation balance should be controlled during ecological soil monitoring for the human activity impact assessment.

  • GIS software for conservation

    Sustaining biodiversity and preventing fragmentation, extinction, and natural resource depletion are crucial to conservation of the environment. The ability to use GIS technology as a tool to monitor habitat change, track wildlife demographics, and predict future land and resource use is essential to conservation goals and practices. The spatial and thematic aspects of GIS technology enable users to overlay various data to delineate and predict the future of our resources, land, ocean, plant life, and wildlife. This geoprocessing enables decision makers to implement laws and programs that will protect and sustain the environment and its resources.

  • Aviation Meteorology

    SWS and VPF sensors are used in airports throughout the world as part of aviation ground control and meteorological monitoring systems. Our visibility and ambient light sensors form the core of Runway Visual Range monitoring systems used to control the safe landing of aircraft in reduced visibility conditions. Our present weather sensors provide automated precipitation classification and monitoring that forms a vital part of the METAR signals broadcast to aircraft in the airport vicinity. The detection and reporting of thunderstorms is important in the aviation industry supporting both the safety of ground operations and the provision of meteorological data to aircraft and forecasting authorities. Our BTD-300 Thunderstorm Detector has been developed to be compliant with FAA regulations for lightning detection systems used at airfields.
