  • Influence of the shear stress and salinity on Anammox biofilms formation: Modelling results

    Anammox biomass has a relatively long duplication time and low yield. This is an advantage because the production of surplus sludge is reduced; however it also implies that the process must be operated in reactors with very good sludge retention. Some of the systems used to improve biomass retention are based on biofilm reactors; therefore, the objective of this work was to study the ability of ...

  • Stevens Hydra Probe Soil Sensors Deployed in Florida Swamp for Restoration Study

    Coastal wetlands provide a large number of critical functions that benefit the surrounding ecosystems and the neighboring human population centers. Coastal flood plains and wetlands help prevent the flooding and destruction of coastal communities by storm surges, acting as a natural buffer to protect communities near the coast. The bald cypress (Taxodium distichum) is one of the dominant tree ...

  • Chronoamperometric–based detection of hydrogen peroxide using palladium nanoparticles

    Monodisperse palladium nanoparticles were used to develop a chronoamperometric–based sensor for the detection of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). Thioether stabilised palladium nanoparticles with diameters of 1.8 nm, 2.0 nm and 3.0 nm were synthesised using a pyrolysis method. The palladium nanoparticles were immobilised on gold electrode ...

  • Remote sensing of land degradation: experiences from Latin America and the Caribbean

    Received for publication April 6, 2009. Land degradation caused by deforestation, overgrazing, and inappropriate irrigation practices affects about 16% of Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). This paper addresses issues related to the application of remote sensing technologies for the identification and mapping of land degradation features, with special attention to the LAC region. The ...

  • Surface Ocean Acidification studies using Ships Of Opportunity

    Ships of Opportunity Ships of opportunity (SOOP) are used as a platform for cost-efficient collection of environmental data, Ferrybox. The SOOP network operated by NIVA cover the majority of the Norwegian coastline (from Germany (54N ) in the South to Svalbard (78N) in the North. This network is used in the national OA monitoring program. Globally, SOOPs are used for pCO2 measurements and ...

  • Monitoring groundwater resources for Municipalities - Case Study

    Background The City of Tucson is located in the Sonoran Desert in southwest United States (U.S.), approximately 100 km north of the Mexico-U.S. border. Tucson Water operates more than 215 groundwater wells, covering more than 300 square miles, providing more than 37 billion gallons (140 million m3) of potable water to its 730,000 inhabitants each year. The region receives only 12 inches of ...

  • Monitoring Water Quality Runoff From a Coalmine

    Intelligent Monitoring Solutions from dataTaker CAS DataLoggers provided the intelligent datalogging solution for an open-cut coalmine managing a high salinity water runoff into local retaining dams. The water from these dams could only be released into the local river system when it was of sufficient quality to have no effect on the irrigation of the surrounding farming district. ...

  • New monitoring technology helps reveal Arctic secrets

    A group of Arctic researchers has employed the latest monitoring technology to investigate the effects of climate change, by measuring temperature and salinity in the water column beneath surface ice. The results of the investigation, which utilised YSI’s new 'Castaway-CTD', could cast new light on our understanding of the ways in which shifting ocean currents impact upon the climate in ...

  • Water quality is key to the success of Cardiff Bay

    Water quality has been a central theme in a redevelopment project that began with the creation of the Cardiff Bay Development Corporation in April 1987. This article will examine the role that water quality has played in the remarkable transformation that has taken place in Cardiff and explain how monitoring technology has developed to the stage whereby any person, anywhere in the world, can view ...

  • Can we bury the carbon dioxide problem?

    Seriously — carbon capture and storage could be a game-changer. Mention “carbon capture and storage” — the process of trapping carbon dioxide produced in fossil-fuel burning or other industrial processes and burying it underground — in polite company, and you’re likely to be pounced on. It’s absurdly expensive. It can never be rolled ...

  • Closures of mine a new challenge for Romania

    AbstractThe mining activity is one of the oldest activity in Romania, dating from the year 100 B.C. The gold and silver ores represented one of the riches of our country. In time the economic content of metals diminuend, and the ore mines become non profitable. Due to this situation the best option of the State was the closure and ecological rehabilitation of the mines.The steps for the ...
