  • Research stations in Antarctica could be affecting magnetic fields

    A new aerial survey is the first to assess the possible impact of a research station in Antarctica on magnetic fields. Estimations indicated that the station generated a magnetic field that extends up to 650 metres from the station with a peak strength of 2800 nanotesla (nT) within 100 metres from the station on the ground. This may have implications for organisms in Antarctica that are ...

  • 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 ...

  • As fast as lightning: The new weather sensor with lightning detection

    Up to now, there was little evidence to prove that damage or fires were caused by lightning. Lightning strikes can not only cause dangerous fires but can also give rise to great financial losses in the case of surge damage. This is especially critical for smart grids, solar panels and wind turbines, but also for building insurance, outdoor events and the forestry sector. “WS800”, the ...
