  • Cyanobacteria successfully monitored and controlled by using ultrasound

    Cyanobacteria- also known as blue-green algae- cause problems when blooming in lakes, ponds and reservoirs. Mainly due to the production of toxins, cyanobacteria cause fish kill and the death of other aquatic animals. They also affect human beings, causing paralysis and skin irritation, and they are even thought to be related to the occurrence of liver cancer. In drinking water reservoirs, the ...

  • Why are we monitoring nutrients at different depths?

    Recently, LG Sonic introduced the MPC-Lab, an innovative monitoring buoy that can monitor algae, physico-chemical variables, and even nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus in near real-time and at different depths in a body of water. Combined with our other monitoring tools, this system offers a unique way to detect the spatial and temporal patterns of nutrient concentrations which play a ...

  • Why Pacific islands should take on ocean monitoring

    Pacific islands must build capacity for their own environmental monitoring to tackle both local and global problems, says Ben Ponia. Small island developing states are viewed as the early-warning canary for global environmental change. But though they share global problems, many have an eye for economic growth and have become industrialised nations facing their own suite of home-grown ...
