  • CMT for high resolution vapor intrusion monitoring

    Background Vapor intrusion refers to the movement of volatile chemicals from the subsurface into the indoor air of overlying buildings. The most common source is groundwater or soil contaminated with volatile organic compounds (VOCs). VOCs emit vapors that migrate into pore spaces of the soil and upward into the overlying environment. Generally, vapors enter buildings through cracks and ...

  • Monitoring heavy metal contamination in the German Wadden Sea

    Human activities, including industrial development along coastal areas, risk polluting the marine environment with heavy metals which can harm human health and aquatic life. A recent study has found elevated levels of metal pollution in the Jade area of the German Wadden Sea, but concludes that metal contamination of the sediments would not be expected to have harmful effects on the marine ...

  • Industry Flocks to Water/Wastewater Monitoring Event

    WWEM 2006 took place in early November and was almost unrecognisable in comparison to the inaugural 2005 event. WWEM was initially created to provide a vehicle for discussing and dispersing information on the Environment Agency’s monitoring certification scheme, MCERTS. However, on the evidence of WWEM 2006, it has become a red letter diary entry for anyone involved with testing or monitoring ...

  • Contaminants monitored for safe drinking water act

    As part of its commitment to implement sensible protections of drinking water for communities across the country, and as required by the Safe Drinking Water Act, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing thirty currently unregulated contaminants for monitoring in water systems, and submitting this proposal for public comment. The comment period will allow the public and other ...


  • Monitoring how aerosols affect climate change

    Monitoring aerosols is of growing interest especially as current research has indicated that fine particulates are linked to not only adverse health effects but also climate change. It has been known for some time that fine particulate matter (PM2.5) has been widely linked to adverse health effects such as asthma. Approximately 70% of particulate mass generated by, for example, bush fires is less ...
