    Abstract In this paper the importance of reagent water quality for toxic element environmental analyses is discussed, and the suitability of fresh ultrapure water produced using Merck water purification systems for ICP-OES and ICP-MS trace element analyses in environmental laboratories is demonstrated. Key words or phrases Trace elements, metals, toxic ...

  • UCT Silane Cited in Clinical Microbiology

    Fungal bloodstream infections have been noted as a significant problem in many countries including the United States, with an attributable mortality rate of up to 40%. An early diagnosis to direct appropriate therapy has been shown to be critical to reduce mortality rates. Conventional phenotypic methods for fungal detection take several days, which is often too late to impact outcomes. The ...

  • Permafrost Monitoring - High resolution temperature profiling of active layer permafrost at Teshekpuk Lake - Case Study

    Teshekpuk Lake is the largest lake in the Alaskan Arctic and the third largest lake in the state. Given the importance of this region to an abundance of native wildlife and expected environmental changes associated with projected sea-level rise, coastline erosion and oil and gas development, the Teshekpuk Lake Observatory (TLO) was established as an effort to gain a ...

  • Airport Foundation Monitoring - Iqaluit International Airport - Case Study

    The Iqaluit International Airport is undergoing a significant infrastructural upgrade to improve safety and access to the Canadian Territory of Nunavut. Traffic at the airport has grown steadily over the last three decades and the facility needs to be updated and improved to continue to serve the area. Due to the absence of paved roads, flying is a critical part of the Nunavut transportation and ...

  • The Boulder Atmospheric Observatory

    Abstract The Boulder Atmospheric Observatory (BAO) is a unique research facility for studying the planetary boundary layer and for testing and calibrating atmospheric sensors. The facility includes a 300 m tower instrumented with fast- and slow-response sensors, a variety of remote sensing systems, and a real-time processing and display capability that greatly reduces analysis time for ...

  • Assessing the impact of volcanic eruptions on climate extremes using CMIP5 models

    This study analyzes extreme temperature and precipitation responses over the global land to five explosive tropical volcanic eruptions that occurred since the 1880s, using CMIP5 multi-model simulations. Changes in annual extreme indices during post-eruption years are examined using a composite analysis. First, a robust global decrease in extreme temperature is found, which is stronger than the ...

  • Technology Array Enables Linked Surveys Above and Below the Surface

    CONSULTANTS at GEL Geophysics LLC, a geophysical and subsurface utility engineering consulting firm based in Charleston, South Carolina, in collaboration with the Ontario, California, office of David Evans and Associates Inc., a professional consulting firm, have combined existing surveying technology to create a system that is far more than a sum of its parts. The innovation is a multi-sensor ...

  • Validation of Salt Water Disposal Well Treatment Plants with Handheld Oil in Water Sample Analyzer

    Salt Water Disposal (SWD) well operators often dispose a substantial volume of oil inadvertently when injecting salt water, thereby losing the opportunity to sell the oil on the market and potentially reducing the ability to inject water in the well. Injection facilities are typically operated with minimal instrumentation or system optimization, which means the operators don't know how much, or ...

  • Downstream sulfuric acid plants benefit from WESP technology

    Industrial-grade sulfuric acid, still the most widely used industrial chemical in the world, continues to be sourced primarily (about 70 percent) as a nondiscretionary byproduct from the roasting, smelting, and refining of nonferrous metals. The rest comes from natural gas processing, electric power generation, and spent acid regeneration. These industries are usually heavy emitters of ...

  • What is resiliency in engineering?

    Resilient are the roads on which you drive, the bridges that you cross, and the buildings that stand tall year after year.  Of course, these components of our day-to-day need maintenance just like anything else but chances are, they were designed and constructed with the tools of their time to promote the highest level of foreseeable longevity. Designing for resiliency is critical: ...
