  • Green Urban Infrastructure: Assessing Potential Ecosystem Services in Urban Cities

    Cities all over the world are currently experiencing climate change caused by rapidly increasing atmospheric greenhouse gases (GHGs). Fortunately, cities may mitigate GHG concentrations by incorporating vegetation into green urban infrastructure (GUI) to develop parks, green roofs, waterways, and other structures. For example, plants sequester carbon (C) by removing atmospheric ...

  • REVO-2 and the ATOM encoder - Case Study

    The REVO multi-sensor system is one of Renishaw's flagship products and enables CMM users to perform 5-axis measurement on a 3-axis co-ordinate measuring machine (CMM). It measures 1000s of points/sec and operates at speeds up to 500 mm/s. As the head is much lighter and more dynamic than the CMM, it is able to quickly follow changes in the part geometry without introducing harmful ...

  • Water Treatment Plant: Benefits of Underwater Cameras

    Before fresh water can be made safe for human consumption it must go through a treatment process eliminating bacteria and any other elements deemed unsafe to drink. How does such a process occur and why is it relevant to us? We’ve written about the use of Deep Trekker remotely operated vehicles and pipe crawler systems in storm water systems, sanitation pipes, and water storage basins. A ...

  • Water reuse through managed aquifer recharge (MAR): assessment of regulations/guidelines and case studies

    Managed aquifer recharge (MAR) with reclaimed water is an important water reuse application. As an intentional way of recharging water into aquifers, MAR can be used to address water shortages and contribute to sustainable water resources management practices. The establishment of a MAR system depends on the source of recharge water, the selection of a recharge method and site, the type of ...

  • Industry under a microscope: improving the reliability and sensitivity of inline inspection tools improves overall pipeline integrity

    The oil and gas pipeline industry has been under close scrutiny for a long time. It leads the way as one of the most regulated industries in the world, and for good reason.  With so many safety-related, social and environmental factors at stake, comprehensive regulation ensures rigorous standards for the design, construction, operation and maintenance of O&G pipeline systems. Global ...

  • Air quality assessment in the EU: room for improvement?

    Different modelling approaches are used to design and assess air quality plans across Europe. This study assessed the strengths and weaknesses of these different approaches. The researchers conclude that a large variety of models is in use, without a preferred or standard model having emerged yet. They identify integrating local-scale and large-scale models and verifying models with measurements ...

  • District heating (dh) pipeline owned by dutch utility poses unique inspection challenge

    Would you take on a new pipeline inspection challenge, even if you knew it would land you in hot water? Recently Pure Technologies (Pure) was able to chalk up success by adding one more type of pipeline to its inspection resumé. In this instance it was a district heating pipeline owned and operated by Eneco, one ...

  • Lessons from the construction of a climate change adaptation plan: A Broads wetland case study

    The dynamic nature of environmental change in coastal areas means that a flexible “learning by doing” management strategy has a number of advantages. This article lays out the principles of such a strategy and then assesses an actual planning and management process focused on climate change consequences for the Broads wetland on the East coast of England. The management strategy focused on the ...

  • A systematic review of outcomes and lessons learned from general, rural, and country-specific Water Safety Plan implementations

    Water Safety Plans (WSPs) are a comprehensive risk assessment and management approach to water delivery that were internationally recommended in 2004. WSPs consist of five implementation steps, followed by evaluation. To date, approximately 90 countries have implemented WSPs; however widespread uptake is limited by lack of documented outcomes and impacts. We conducted a systematic review to ...

  • Assessment of hazard metrics for predicting field benthic invertebrate toxicity in the Detroit River, Ontario, Canada

    Numerical sediment quality guidelines (SQGs) are frequently used to interpret site specific sediment chemistry and predict potential toxicity to benthic communities. These SQGs are useful for a screening line of evidence (LOE) that can be combined with other LOEs in a full weight of evidence (WOE) assessment of impacted sites. Three common multi‐chemical hazard quotient methods (PEC‐Qavg, ...
