  • News, release of a new groundwater software

    VisualRflow is a completely new reactive transport software, it is as fast as Bioscreen but as powerfull as RT3D. VisualRflow is dedicated ot 2D horizontal saturated flow and transport of dissolved reactive species. It is largely oriented towards natural attenuation, but can deal with other cases. The interface is a simplified pre- and post-processor for Modflow, when flow has been calculated, ...


  • Seeps important in watershed nitrogen retention

    Globally, the mobilization of nitrogen has increased significantly due to human activities, such as industrial and agricultural development. As a result, over the past decades, eutrophication in coastal ecosystems has increased. Watershed nitrogen retention is an important mechanism to decrease nitrogen loading to downstream water bodies. Generally, in the northeastern U.S., the amount of ...

  • HPR-40 MIMS System Assists in Denitrification Studies

    Denitrification is the process carried out by bacteria that converts nitrites and nitrates to nitrogen, nitric oxide and nitrous oxide gases. Two of these gases have been linked with ozone layer depletion and global warming. Denitrification is an anaerobic process and occurs in environments where oxygen levels are depleted, such as within soils and groundwater. The Hiden HPR-40 membrane inlet ...

  • Signs of recovery in polluted Czech forests

    Pollution has had a significant impact on European forests, where it disrupts many natural processes. Forests in Central Europe are among the most severely affected by pollution worldwide. New research1 from the Czech Republic suggests that attempts to cut sulfur-based pollution (such as acid rain) could also be important in a longer-term reduction of nitrate output from forest watersheds as ...

  • Determination of fluoride species in etching baths used in the manufacturing process of solar cells

    Metrohm presents a method for the straightforward ion chromatographic determination of HF, HNO3, short-chain organic acids and H2SiF6 in acidic texturing baths used in the manufacturing process of solar cells. Standard ions such as fluoride, nitrate, acetate and sulfate are determined via suppressed conductivity detection while dissolved silicate is spectrophotometrically detected in the same run ...

  • Chlorine monitoring in water with high Mn/Fe salts

    In 2012, Intellitect Water launched the new V2 Intellisonde (IV2) in-pipe water quality monitor, which offered two new advantages; retained calibration data and improved chlorine measurement. Since that time, IV2 sondes have been successfully installed around the world offering users easier access to water quality data. However, now that the IV2 sondes have been in operation for nearly a year, ...

  • Estuary research project highlights advantages of continuous monitoring

    Researchers from the south coast of England have established a small network of monitoring instruments in Christchurch Harbour and associated rivers to study the effects of weather events on water quality, and to better understand the magnitude and spatial/temporal variation of macronutrient fluxes - nitrogen (N), carbon (C) and phosphorus (P). The project, which is financed by a Natural ...

  • Treatability study of bioremediation of dinitrotoluene

    Dinitrotoluene (DNT) ground water contamination at the Propellant Burning Ground has been controlled by a pump and treat system since 1990. Alternative approaches to improve the cost effectiveness are under evaluation, including reducing the amount of ground water extraction by treating contaminants in place. Bioremediation has been evaluated and shown to be effective, but required an engineered ...

  • Advanced Rio lab warns of Olympic water quality danger

    Scientists at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, who have been testing the waters around Rio for the last 20 years, have expressed disappointment with the lack of progress being made in preparation for the 2016 Olympics. Employing advanced technology from SEAL Analytical, the university’s marine biology laboratory has revealed worrying trends for parameters such as ammonia, nitrates ...

  • BRIDGE provides thresholds for EU Water Framework Directive

    The EU Water Framework Directive (WFD) defines chemical status objectives for groundwater and related monitoring obligations but does not yet provide criteria to assess chemical status compliance. Now researchers from EU project BRIDGE (Background Criteria for the Identification of Groundwater Thresholds) have investigated 14 representative bodies of groundwater and developed thresholds that can ...

  • Female fish swap sex in polluted, low-oxygen water

    Hypoxia – low levels of dissolved oxygen – can cause genetically female fish to develop into males, new research has found. Hypoxia in aquatic environments is often the result of eutrophication, which is caused by pollution from human activities. The findings suggest that hypoxia could cause fish populations to collapse, with consequences for entire ecosystems. There are more ...
