  • Assessment of field fluorometers

    Two field fluorometers, devoted either to natural organic matter (NOM) or to tryptophan-like fluorescing substances, were tested for the characterization of a large set of water samples (n = 263) impacted to various degrees by untreated or poorly treated urban sewage. Both fluorometers yielded consistent results when testing discrete samples. A nonlinear correlation (coefficient of ...

  • Exploring photosynthesis and plant stress using inexpensive chlorophyll fluorometers

    Mastering the concept of photosynthesis is of critical importance to learning plant physiology and its applications, but seems to be one of the more challenging concepts in biology. This teaching challenge is no doubt compounded by the complexity by which plants alter photosynthesis in different environments. Here we suggest the use of chlorophyll fluorometers in the undergraduate plant ...

  • Rapid quantification of polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) concentration in activated sludge with the fluorescent dye Nile blue A

    The present study was conducted (1) to develop a rapid quantification method of polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) concentration in activated sludge by Nile blue A staining and fluorescence measurement and (2) to perform on-line monitoring of PHA concentrations in activated sludge. Activated sludge samples collected from laboratory scale sequencing batch reactors and full-scale wastewater treatment ...

  • Simultaneous Nitrification and Denitrification through Low-DO Operation

    Single-tank simultaneous nitrification and denitrification (SNdN) processes can potentially eliminate the need for separate tanks and for recycling mixed liquor from oxic nitrifying zones to the typically upstream anoxic zones for denitrification. However, the conditions involved are more susceptible to sludge bulking by excessive growth of filamentous bacteria. This study was aimed at ...

  • SMF4 case study 3

    Bathing Water Catchment monitoring Date:2010 Location: Bude Cornwall UK Purpose: To carry out a river survey identifying potential pollution sources and their likely impact on bathing waters downstream. Background STS and the Environment Agency have, for some time, been discussing the issue of monitoring water courses which ...
