  • Real Time Control of the Sewage System in St Malo

    Saint-Malo is an extremely attractive and popular seaside resort on the north coast of Brittany in France. Covering 1,400 hectares, the local population of 50,000 increases to 120,000 in the tourist season. One of the distinguishing features of this part of the Channel coast is a very high tidal range – 14 meters from low to high, with a potential impact back through the sewer network. Combined ...

  • Real-Time Stormwater Management Using Depth, Duration, Frequency Thresholds

    ABSTRACTThe City of Austin (City) operates a Flood Early Warning System (FEWS) to reduce public exposure to flash flood hazards. The system is operated and maintained by the Watershed Protection and Development Review Department, Watershed Engineering Division. Advanced information and warning of urban storm water flooding is achieved by the FEWS. A critical component of the system is rainfall ...

  • Real time odour monitoring: odour abatement monitoring using electronic noses.

    The equipment implemented to reduce odour emissions is designed with effectiveness in mind. However, some operating conditions may reduce that effectiveness without an industrial site being able to detect this quickly. Processes that most of the time have low odour emissions may become, under certain weather conditions, a major nuisance source. An electronic nose system can detect odour before ...

  • Weather claims and wind safety

    Anybody working in the construction industry either here in the UK or anywhere else in the world is likely to know that the weather can present us with particular hazards. While rain, ice and snow are particularly dangerous to work in, we must always be aware that the wind is also likely to make conditions unsafe, particularly for those who work at height and those who ...

  • How to collect and analyze data from 100,000 weather stations - Case Study

    Want to know what it’s like to analyze massive amounts of data under pressure? Talk to Bryson Koehler, CIO of The Weather Company (which owns the Weather Channel), who must interpret data sets from around the world to predict something as volatile as the weather. If you want to understand what it takes to collect, track and analyze reams of data, just check the weather. There are constant ...

  • A Calgary Wastewater Treatment Plant Finds Real-Time Information on Effluent Quality Critical to Achieving Consistent Performance in Biological Nutrient Removal

    In 1994, the Bonnybrook Wastewater Treatment Plant in Calgary, Alta., completed the first phase of an upgrade to biological nutrient removal (BNR) after several years of testing. Bonnybrook was not the first treatment plant to upgrade bioreactors for nutrient removal: Other communities had struggled with the technology. Bonnybrook operators determined that real-time information on final effluent ...

  • Time to stop losing ocean data to vandalism

    More must be done to prevent damage of ocean data buoys that costs money, vital data — and lives, say Sidney Thurston and M. Ravichandran. The global community relies on a rapidly expanding ocean observing network to understand the climate and ecosystems, to help warn against ocean-borne hazards such as tsunamis and storm surges caused by cyclones, and to support sea rescue ...

  • Climate Change Driving Weather off the Charts

    Meteorologists are calling the typhoon that slammed into the Philippines with 195-mile-an-hour winds on November 8, 2013, the most powerful tropical storm to make landfall on record. Super Typhoon Haiyan had gusts reaching 235 miles per hour and a storm surge swelling as high as 20 feet, so the destruction it left behind matched that of a tornado combined with a tsunami. Three days later, at the ...

  • Safe Landings Whatever the Weather: Lufft Sensors on Airports

    Pilots, air traffic controllers and airport operators do their best to make air travel safer and more efficient. Sometimes, however, flight security depends on external factors we can hardly influence. This especially refers to risky weather conditions: Strong winds, icy cold or strong precipitation can have serious consequences. On average, 23% of all aircraft accidents and 68% of canceled ...

  • Sliicer.com - Innovative On-line Software for Wet Weather Analysis

    This paper presents a sophisticated I/I analysis software tool that is available on-line to any City or engineering consultant. Probably the most common use of flow monitoring data is the analysis of flow during dry and wet weather. The analysis may determine if a sewer has capacity for development, to calibrate a hydraulic model or to analyze inflow and infiltration. Additionally cMOM envisions ...

  • 5 Growing Extreme Weather Threats to America’s Cities

    Weather events have been dominating the news recently thanks to the “polar vortex” that caused record cold temperatures across the nation. But just a few months ago, the news was filled with other events: record rain and flooding in Colorado; destructive tornadoes in Oklahoma; widespread drought in the Southwest; and the sluggish recovery from Superstorm Sandy in New Jersey. Unlike ...

  • 2011: A Year of Weather Extremes, with More to Come

    The global average temperature in 2011 was 14.52 degrees Celsius (58.14 degrees Fahrenheit). According to NASA scientists, this was the ninth warmest year in 132 years of recordkeeping, despite the cooling influence of the La Niña atmospheric and oceanic circulation pattern and relatively low solar irradiance. Since the 1970s, each subsequent decade has gotten hotter -- and 9 of the 10 ...
