  • The importance of groundwater monitoring

    Groundwater monitoring is an essential element in any environmental information system. Based upon validated groundwater monitoring data, information is derived on which decisions can be made. Constant monitoring provides the necessary data input for your smart environment and is basically the basis of the decision making process concerning spatial planning and climate change adaptation. As in ...

  • Monitoring Environmental Quality

    ' In order to determine the effectiveness of actions to improve environmental quality it is necessary to be able to measure relevant environmental parameters at a level of detail which is accurate enough to distinguish the anticipated changes. However, the establishment and maintenance of monitoring systems is time-consuming and expensive and therefore the scale of such systems needs to be kept ...

  • A novel approach for designing large-scale river temperature monitoring networks

    Water temperature is an important control on processes in aquatic systems and particularly for freshwater fish, affecting growth, survival and demographic characteristics. In recognition of this importance, the Scottish Government has prioritised developing a robust national river temperature monitoring network. Advances in geographical information systems, spatial statistics and field data ...

  • Use of geostatistics to evaluate the monitoring well network of a TCE plume

    This paper summarises the use of geostatistics to evaluate an existing network of wells in a groundwater monitoring program. The primary objective was to evaluate whether selective well removal would result in a comparable characterisation of a trichloroethylene (TCE) plume. For adequate characterisation, it is important to retain enough wells to evaluate areas with higher concentrations and to ...

  • Monitoring network optimisation for spatial data classification using support vector machines

    The paper presents a novel method for monitoring network optimisation, based on a recent machine learning technique known as support vector machine. It is problem-oriented in the sense that it directly answers the question of whether the advised spatial location is important for the classification model. The method can be used to increase the accuracy of classification models by taking a small ...

  • Real-time environmental monitoring of the Great Barrier Reef

    The Great Barrier Reef (GBR) is the largest natural feature on earth, stretching more than 2300 km along the northeast coast of Australia. It contains a diverse array of species and habitats that are threatened by environmental and human impacts. Monitoring environmental changes would give a better understanding of the health of this ecological system. It would also help shape decision-making to ...

  • Water Quality Monitoring and Testing Using an Environmental Logger

    Intelligent dataTaker System from CAS DataLoggers Water disruptions typically occur after a large amount of water has rapidly collected in a catchment area. As a result this water is subject to continual monitoring and testing for a variety of chemical and biological agents as well as clarity, rate of movement, and water levels for environmental management. Turbidity, conductivity, ...

  • Behaviour of different cementitious material formulations in sewer networks

    Sewer networks are subjected to degradation, including biodeterioration of materials, in the presence of biogenic sulfuric acid, leading to costly repairs. To ensure durable structures, it is essential to select the best adapted materials. Two cementitious materials based on ordinary Portland cement (OPC) or calcium aluminate cement (CAC), were subjected to biodeterioration in the headspace of ...

  • A global setting for European environmental monitoring — measuring what we must manage

    Food production, energy security, the availability of safe drinking water and healthy ecosystems are all drivers of stable economic growth. The recent economic upheavals have underlined this fact and shown just how important it is that the planet's natural capital is managed as well as its economic assets if society's basic needs are to be met. Today's international frameworks, conventions and ...

  • Are environmental monitoring manufacturers pulling a fast one with back-to-base servicing?

    Geotech's users of environmental monitoring equipment are not alone in their frustration at having valuable equipment unavailable when they require servicing.  Is this just a money-making scam?  What do users get for their money?  By combining maximum possible local support with a 100-point factory full service schedule, Geotech believe they have the best balance of user ...

  • The Application of Network Modeling in Drought Management: Reflections on the AWWA Drought Management Handbook

    Introduction Water and life are synonymous. Communities expect to be protected from floods, to have a reliable and safe water supply, to be able to swim and fish in rivers and lakes. Stakeholders who share water ultimately compete for that water, with conflicts becoming more critical during periods of prolonged drought, when there is not enough water to go around and rationing is enforced. ...

  • Cloud computing for noise monitoring

    ABSTRACT Cloud computing is the use of computing resources that are delivered as a service over the Internet. This means that software, hardware and network resources are centrally managed. The ubiquitous availability of high-capacity networks and reduced cost of both client and server hardware have led to a tremendous growth in cloud computing. The concept gives a huge benefit for ...

  • Biodiversity monitoring in Europe

    What is citizen science? The European Environment Agency (EEA) uses the following definition of citizen science: 'public involvement in projects or on-going programmes of scientific work by which individual volunteers or networks of volunteers, many of whom may have no specific scientific training, perform or manage research-related tasks such as observation, measurement or computation' ...

  • Monitoring watershed health

    Background Municipal water quality managers recognize the need for data that can be used to monitor and assess the impact of urbanization on the condition of natural watersheds. Storm events, in conjunction with the alteration of native landscape, building of roads and overuse of fertilizer, can contribute to excess nutrients, sediment and other pollutants in environmentally significant ...
