  • Moving Bed Reactors

    Mobile bed biological systems (MBBR) have experimented a strong impulse in the last times due to their flexibility and simplicity in enlargement works for existing WWTP and application in newly constructed plants, since it allows modular facilities, greatly replacing the presence gained by the MBR (membrane bioreactor) system with lower costs. All this has been possible thanks to high ...

  • Deep thinking on the world’s oceans

    Changes in deep ocean conditions affect global climate, with deep warming contributing to sea-level rise and the deep ocean absorbing atmospheric carbon dioxide. To assess change, researchers determine the amount of energy (in the form of heat), water and gases (including carbon dioxide), entering and exiting the ocean. They rely on valuable but infrequent deep ocean measurements from ships, ...

  • Encouraging signals from the deep

    World attention is focused these days on the rescue efforts to free 33 trapped miners from a collapsed mine in Chile. It is a story of heroism, determination and technological achievement in the face of almost unimaginable obstacles. But despite the joy of the (hopefully) successful Chilean rescue efforts, there remains a larger global issue regarding the social, economic and environmental ...

  • Shedding light on the cinderellas of the deep sea

    Ocean sponges from shallower waters have already been shown to be valuable sources for new medicinal drugs to treat cancers and for antibiotics, and it is expected that deepwater sponges will be equally valuable, if not more so. A groundbreaking new report, Deep-sea Sponge Grounds: Reservoirs of Biodiversity, which consolidates knowledge on the biology and ecology of deep-water sponge grounds, ...

  • REMOTE LEVEL MONITORING OF DEEP RIVERS

    Remote River Monitoring with SmartScan25 SolidAT solution for Remote River Level Monitoring is now enhanced with the introduction of GaugerTX. Until recently, GaugerGSM sensors were deployed, allowing measurements of river depth ranges up to 9.5 meters (31’). GaugerGSM are ultrasonic level sensors compactly integrated with GSM communications. GaugerGSM, together with GaugerNET, a web-based ...

  • Deep geologic repository for radioactive waste

    The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (the Agency) has announced the availability of up to $175,000 under its Participant Funding Program to assist groups and individuals to participate in the environmental assessment of Ontario Power Generation's (OPG) proposed facility for the long-term disposal of low and intermediate level radioactive waste in Ontario. To receive funding, successful ...

  • Microplastics discovered in the deep, open ocean

    A unique study by scientists at the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) will provide valuable new insights into the concentrations of microplastics in the open ocean from surface to the sea bed. Professor Richard Lampitt and Dr Katsia Pabortsava, who lead microplastic research at NOC, said “There is considerable uncertainty about the concentration and characteristics of the many ...

  • Capturing and storing CO2 deep underground

    CSIRO and the CRC for Greenhouse Gas Technologies (CO2CRC) hosted a seminar today on the latest research and technology underpinning carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS).  The seminar, held at the Australian Resources Research Centre in Perth, was officially opened by the Western Australian Minister for Energy; Resources; Industry and Enterprise, The Hon. Francis Logan. Experts from ...

  • SEAMOR ROV used in Deep Sea Archeaological Search

    The Aurora Trust Foundation called upon Daniel Nordstrom from AtlantEco, SEAMOR Marine‘s Norwegian dealer to help provide ROV support during their series of dives in Malta and Panarea Island off the coast of Sicily.  With a large interdisciplinary team, the mission for this excursion was to explore three shipwrecks that had historical significance and ...

  • Technical Announcement: Bacteria No Match for Deep Floridan Aquifer

    A first of its kind study has the potential to impact future regulatory decisions on disinfection practices for water prior to its recharge or following its storage in the Floridan Aquifer. The U.S Geological Survey report found that coliform bacteria die off faster in a regional aquifer system ...

  • Deep-ocean sentinels on northern climate watch

    Up to 3,000 metres tall and carrying an array of special marine sensors, the moorings were deployed earlier this month as part of an international collaboration to monitor the Timor Passage and Ombai Strait – two strategic deep ocean channels which act as 'chokepoints' in the global system of ocean currents. Valued at over $1 million, the moorings were deployed as part of Australia's ...

  • Improved oxygen conditions in the Baltic deep water

    Oxygen conditions in the south eastern Baltic have improved thanks to an inflow of oxygen-rich water from the North Sea during November/December 2011. This inflow has also caused the concentrations of phosphate and silicate to increase in the surface waters, which could cause excessive algal blooms this summer. As a result of the relatively large inflow from the Kattegat to the Baltic ...

  • Marine litter in deep sea ecosystems of the Mediterranean

    Marine litter is a major issue in deep sea ecosystems in the Mediterranean Sea, new research confirms. A recent study shows that the total weight of litter found in these sensitive areas often equals, and even exceeds, that of the animals that live there. This work can provide a baseline for assessments of the impact of deep sea marine litter and to inform future policy reforms, the researchers ...

  • DEEPSEA CHALLENGE - CO2 analysis seven miles deep

    At almost seven miles down, carbon dioxide management is critical for life support. On 26th March 2012, with James Cameron at 35,756 feet under the waves on the seabed of the Mariana Trench, he and the DEEPSEA CHALLENGE team needed real-time live data on the levels of oxygen (O2), carbon dioxide (CO2), air temperature and humidity in the sub. Those four readings from a specially modified Geotech ...
