  • Environmental benchmarks vs. ecological benchmarks for assessment and monitoring in Canada: Is there a difference?

    Environmental benchmarks are widely used in Canadian environmental assessment as a standard against which to monitor air or water quality in response to human activities in the environment. Recent work in Canada has developed the concept of ecological benchmarks as a complement to environmental benchmarks. However, implementation of ecological benchmarks may be challenging. This paper presents an ...

  • Monitoring of water node in wroclaw

    Background Wroclaw's water node has complicated structure. The river Odra has 3 main riverbeds and a lot of channels which are located in the centre of town. There are almost 100 hydro buildings which control flow of the water through the city and protect it against theflood. The great flood in 1997 proved that no one has control over it. Communication systems failure caused ...

  • Staying Safe with Environmental Monitoring

    Geotechnical Instrumentation involves administering the earth and environment and it is hence that designers have made different frameworks to make the occupation simpler. These frameworks grab thousands upon much information that it orders and illuminates so they can concoct evidence. The places where it is necessary are the pollution chance appraisal, trends in time and space; anticipatory ...

  • Radiation Monitors and Meters

    Light Description and Applications The light meter is a portable unit designed to measure visible, UV, and near-UV light in the workplace. (The CTC has a UV light meter available through its loan program, ALEP.) The light meter is capable of reading any optical unit of energy or power level if the appropriate detector has been calibrated with the meter. The spectral range of the instrument is ...

  • Effects of iron on ecological communities

    Mark and I have been working with the Iron industry to try to understand the effects of iron on aquatic ecosystems. We have been analysing extensive field monitoring data on the quality of invertebrate communities in rivers and relating this to the levels of different forms of iron (total, dissolved, or particulate) that are present. Invertebrate communities do appear to be adversely affected ...

  • Use of Phytoplankton Assemblages for Monitoring Ecological Status of Lakes within the Water Framework Directive: The Assemblage Index

    On basis of recent developments in phytoplankton ecology an assemblage index,Q,was developed to assess ecological status of di .erent lake types established by the Water Framework Directive (WFD).Since 5 ‡Q ‡0,the developed index can provide 5-grade quali .cation required by WFD.Case studies from very di .erent lake types support the usefulness of the developed index.Straights and weaknesses of ...

  • Linking feeding inhibition with reproductive impairment in Gammarus confirms the ecological relevance of feeding assays in environmental monitoring

    The in situ feeding bioassay in Gammarus fossarum is recognised as a reliable tool for monitoring the toxicity of freshwater contamination. However, whether recorded feeding inhibitions can potentially provoke population‐level adverse outcomes remains an open question. Here we present an experimental study in G. fossarum, which contributes to the quantitative description of the links between ...

  • Validation of integrated bio-chemical monitoring platforms for quantification of ecological water status at a river basin scale (VIECO)

    The Water Framework Directive (WFD) demands a good ecological status of all water bodies. The main objective of VIECO project is to contribute to the enhancement of water quality by developing a costeffective monitoring platform to provide environmental indicators of ecological status of surface waters. This platform integrates off-line and on-line sensors and in-line integrating measuring tools ...

  • 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 with hydrolab MS5

    Background The Škocjan caves are a unique natural phenomenon located in south western Slovenia and are preserved as the Škocjan Caves Park under UNESCO protection. One of the most famous network of underground caves in the world, they were formed by the flow of the Reka River as it bored tunnels through the region’s limestone geology. The river first disappears underground just outside the ...

  • FCC offers free VHF radio spectrum (MURS) for personal and business use
