  • 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 ...

  • Technology Can Help Fleets Manage Potential Weather Disruptions

    Hurricane Matthew is serving as another lesson for the U.S. trucking industry on the important role technology can and should play in operating in and around storm-affected regions. More than a million residences and businesses lost power in Florida alone, and at least 38 people died as a result of Matthew’s winds and torrential rains, 19 of them in North Carolina where widespread ...

  • 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 ...

  • How to prepare your WWTP for cold weather

    Being proactive during cold weather can noticeably reduce wastewater treatment plant upsets While most people enjoy the cooler temperatures that come with fall, they can cause a well-running wastewater treatment plant to have issues almost overnight. Bacteria do not reduce BOD or reproduce as effectively during the colder months of the year. They generally favor temperatures between 68 and ...

  • Engineers torque technology to medics

    Medical experts and sports scientists are becoming increasingly reliant on engineers as their disciplines become more and more technical. Mark Ingham looks at some of the projects his company, Sensor Technology, has helped behind the scenes. Like most rugby players I took my knees for granted until the day a twisting fall resulted in a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Fortunately these days it ...

  • On the application of miniSoDAR technology to wind energy

    Introduction In the late 1990’s wind turbines with nacelle heights exceeding 60 meters were introduced to the wind energy community. Initially, wind prospecting and siting studies continued to use 50-meter wind towers and extrapolate the measurement to the nacelle heights. It was quickly determined that this approach was not sufficient for the placement of these tall turbines. The next ...

  • Current Trends in Environmental Noise Monitoring in Europe

    Introduction This paper briefly describes the state of the art of environmental noise monitoring development in Europe, including the needs, standards, legislation, data, technology, techniques and tools. This paper will concentrate on the following areas: • How Imagine and the development of ISO 20906 and ISO 1996 affect noise monitoring systems • The need and role of professional ...

  • Monitoring network for Scottish ports - Case Studies

    Historically, ferry masters operating off the west coast of Scotland would have to sail to a port and on arrival visually assess the weather and tide conditions before deciding whether safe berthing alongside the pier or quayside would be possible. This wastes time and fuel, and can causes immense frustration among passengers, who may see ferries come close to a port, but thereafter depart ...

  • Reduction of Train Noise Monitored by New Measurement Station

    With increasing passenger and freight traffic, the strengthening of the rail traffic is an important and actual issue. For sustainable mobility, the reduction of noise pollution caused by trains is essential. All involved parties agree on one claim: Increase railway traffic, decrease railway noise! Additional to two already existing stations measuring road traffic noises, ...

  • The challenges and benefits of local air quality monitoring

    A new generation of air quality monitors is now being offered to provide localised, real-time air quality readings – but the potential benefit is only just starting to be realised. It is generally accepted that whilst measurements from air quality reference stations are highly accurate, they are not sufficiently location-specific. Key pollutants – such as NO2 and PM2.5 ...

  • Portable Monitoring Instruments Solve Flow Rate Mystery

    The Glen Walter Sewage Collection System was built to service 1080 customers in 1989. At the time the population was 850 but by 1995 the sewage treatment plant had already reached capacity. Shawn Killoran took over the Operations Manger position in 1999 and, along with the Mayor and Council, he immediately had concerns about the excess flow. The Township started by video taping all of the lines ...
