  • Field demonstration of a near-real-time multi-metals ambient fence line monitor case study

    National emissions standards for hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) are required under Section 112 of the Clean Air Act to limit the release of specified HAPs. Permitting, monitoring and enforcement of these emission limits are an integral part of managing air quality to protect human health and the environment. However, this is difficult and highly uncertain in the case of fugitive emissions ...

  • AquaLab Analyzer provides real-time phosphorus measurement in Everglades

    When it comes to ecosystem sustainability, Florida is no backwater. The South Florida Water Management District, which includes the unique Everglades habitat, had a major challenge. The EPA and various governmental authorities have defined limits for many water quality parameters to support a water body’s designated use. Any physical, chemical or biological condition that threatens the designated ...

  • Innovative Technology Provides Real Time Flow Data Management in Indianapolis

    This paper presents the program developed by the City of Indianapolis for managing its sewer flow data and describes how it is making real-time information available to several groups that have a stake in the City’s environmental management programs. These groups include United Water, the contract operator for the City’s collection system and its two WWTPs, the Capitol Improvement Program ...

  • FORMA: A Near-Real Time Alert System for Tropical Forest Loss

    If you were the administrator of a protected forest, you would ideally have a staff of rangers on patrol, backed up by law enforcement and high-resolution satellite images to keep you up-to-date on the forest’s condition. In this ideal world, illegal activity would quickly be halted. Yet the reality is that many protected areas lack these resources. ...

  • Detection of Airborne Viruses in a Pediatrics Department Measured Using Real-Time qPCR Coupled to an Air-Sampling Filter Method

    Children are vulnerable to viral infections. The study discussed in this article investigates the possibility of aerosol transmission of viruses in children under age 18 in the pediatrics department of a medical center in Taipei, Taiwan. After first using the filtration method to collect viral aerosols, the authors combined it with real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) to detect ...

  • Quantitative real-time PCR does not reliably detect single fecal indicator bacteria in drinking water

    The microbial quality of drinking and environmental water is usually determined by culture-based detection of fecal indicator bacteria according to ISO reference methods 16649-1 and 7899-2, respectively. Because of an increasing demand for rapid, culture-independent methods, we tested three quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) approaches for the simultaneous detection of both, ...

  • Field tracer experiments over nuclear sites for the validation of a Korean real-time atmospheric dispersion and dose assessment system (FADAS)

    A real-time atmospheric dispersion and dose assessment system (FADAS) has been developed. It has been used as a basic tool to monitor the atmospheric dispersion of released radioactive materials and radiological dose assessment to the national emergency preparedness system, CARE, since 1995. Tracer experiments have been conducted for the purpose of validating FADAS and analysing the environmental ...

  • 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 ...
