  • Mining Emissions Effectively Monitored with Micro Pulse LiDAR Technology

    Mining operations include blasting, excavating, scraping, and sifting large amounts of dirt. These activities create dust and other emissions that are transported by air currents to surrounding areas. It is easy to say that dangerous particulate matter (PM) generated by mining should be monitored and kept to a minimum; however, it is very challenging to measure the levels of contaminants in the ...

  • Researchers are Advancing Science Using Micro Pulse LiDAR Technology

    There are so many examples of interesting research using Micro Pulse LiDAR (MPL) technology it is difficult to decide on my favorites; however, I have chosen to highlight the following two papers because these applications for the MPL and MiniMPL address problems that are very important to global health. I’ve created a summary of each report and provided the citation in case you are ...

  • Micro Pulse Lidar: Perfect Tool for Atmospheric Research

    Micro pulse style lidars are active remote sensing tools proven to be highly useful in atmospheric research. This style of backscatter lidar has been around for decades; however, incremental improvements in photon counting, sensitivity, polarization, optical filters, coatings, and precision machining of each element support increasingly accurate analysis. Each iteration of the ...

  • Sensaguard Online Water Monitoring - Case Study

    Clean water is an increasingly scarce, essential resource nowadays and the demand for it is growing continuously. Though drinking water is checked regularly, the analysis is limited to the water quality at the time of analysis and the specific substances being tested for. Moreover, the threats of contamination and contaminated sites are growing steadily as more and more unknown and new ...

  • Stanford Researchers Link Aquifer Overdraft to Arsenic Contamination

    In a recent study, researchers used satellite data to establish a link between excessive pumping from California aquifers and dangerous arsenic concentration spikes in the groundwater of the Tulare Basin. This promises to be an important early warning system for the growing problem of arsenic contamination, which potentially threatens ...

  • Why Your Cooling Tower Should Have Drift Eliminator?

    If you have a cooling tower on your facility to remove heat from your operations, you should be using a drift eliminator to keep toxic chemical compounds out of the surrounding environment. Most cooling towers should be fitted with a drift eliminator as way of protecting the natural environment, according to the Federal Energy ...

  • Using the HydraProbe Soil Sensor for Determination of Flood Risk in the New York State Mesonet

    In January 2014, the Department of Homeland Security established the New York State Early Warning Weather Detection System. The centerpiece of the system is the New York State Mesonet, a network of 125 weather stations across the state, with at least one site in every county. Each site measures temperature, humidity, wind speed and direction, pressure, radiation, and soil information (provided by ...

  • Ultrapure Water for Determination of Toxic Elements in Environmental Analyses

    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 ...

  • Assessment of toxic metals in water and sediment of Pasur River in Bangladesh

    This study was conducted to assess the levels of toxic metals like arsenic (As), chromium (Cr), cadmium (Cd), and lead (Pb) in water and sediments of the Pasur River in Bangladesh. The ranges of Cr, As, Cd, Pb in water were 25.76–77.39, 2.76–16.73, 0.42–2.98 and 12.69–42.67 μg/L and in sediments were 20.67–83.70, 3.15–19.97, 0.39–3.17 and 7.34–55.32 mg/kg.

  • Improved Determination of Volatile Organic Compounds in Water by SPME and GC/MS: ISO Standard 17943

    The analysis of water for volatile organic compounds is important due to their toxicity. The current methods for this determination lack of sensitivity, selectivity or capability for automation. This paper presents the new ISO 17943 Standard using Solid Phase Microextraction (SPME) and GC/MS. The sample preparation by SPME enables low limits of detection and easy automation of the whole method. ...

  • Hexavalent chromium removal from municipal wastewater using ferrous salts

    Hexavalent chromium is difficult to remove during conventional biological wastewater treatment. This is because the hexavalent form is dissolved and is only sparingly removed by adsorption onto biomass in conventional processes. Hexavalent chromium is of particular concern because of its aquatic toxicity, and an increasing number of wastewater works have effluent discharge limits to protect ...

  • How to identify issues in water quality

    Water quality can mean different things to different people and therefore depends on what standard of quality one is looking for, for example, water may be fine for fish to live in but lack the quality required for human consumption. To measure the quality of water accurately, tests are carried out to identify several key indicators. These characteristics are then compared ...
