  • Arctic Polar Research - A Global Responsibility

    Due to climate change and geopolitical trends, the Polar Regions (particularly the Arctic) are increasingly becoming the focus of scientific, political, and economic interests. Much of the global climate is driven by forces that originate in the Arctic. The Arctic sea ice is receding faster than climate models have predicted, and the movement of freshwater into and around the Arctic plays an ...

  • Tech Tip: Deploying Sea-Bird CTD in Ice

    Large numbers of Sea-Bird conductivity instruments have been used in Arctic and Antarctic programs. Special accommodation to keep temperature, conductivity, oxygen, and optical sensors at or above 0° C is advised. Often, the CTD is brought inside protective doors between casts to achieve this. Conductivity Cell When freezing is possible, we ...

  • Present Status and Future of Advanced Scientific Instrument using X-ray

    X-rays have attracted a lot of attention as a form of electromagnetic radiation that enable us to see objects through materials. And they are also a great contributor to clacification of physical phenomena. In the field of analysis, X-rays have drawn attention from their initial stage as a method of non-destructive simultaneous anaysis. Scientific measurement using X-rays is supported by three ...

  • TOC Analysis for Standard Methods 5310B: High-Temperature Combustion Method

    Introduction Total Organic Carbon (TOC) is a rapid method that analyzes for organic carbon and expresses the result as the amount of carbon found. It is a non-specific method unable to distinguish between various organic species and only indicates that organic carbon compounds are present. Organic carbon analyzers operate by the determination of the amount of total carbon present in a ...

  • Portable PMI Instruments

    Positive material identification (PMI) is a powerful methodology for assuring that manufacturing companies operate with greater profit, more efficiency, and the highest possible leveis of safety. The requirement for PMI of alloy materials in refinery systems and petrochemical plant operations has grown dramatically from the late 1970s when it was a rarity, to nearly 100% PMI in today’s risk-based ...

  • World globalisation, sustainable development and scientific cooperation

    Development-related questions have been raised periodically for over forty years. Development cooperation, in its turn, is also controversial, especially since its role is to make good intentions real, i.e. transform them into projects, programmes and other policy instruments generating investments that are much more pertinent than mere declarations of intent. Starting from an overview of the ...

  • Cardiff WWTW aeration optimisation through scientific control

    Aeration optimisation of a 16 basin SBR plant running in ICEAS (Intermittent Cycle Extended Aeration System) mode was under taken by changing the operating parameters from the traditional design of dissolved oxygen (DO) control to a scientific approach using respirometry. Measuring the critical oxygen point for carbonaceous and nitrification bacteria and combining this with in-situ Oxygen Uptake ...

  • An ecologist's view of economic instruments and incentives

    Advice by fisheries scientists to reduce catches or effort is often not fully implemented and efforts to increase impact of advice have often failed. Fisheries scientists rarely discuss the potential contribution of economic instruments to improving the impact of science advice. This paper rejects several possible justifications for the absence of discussion on economic instruments in fisheries ...
