  • ColorPlus – Absorption meter

    The two parameters UV-absorption and colour are important factors when monitoring the quality of potable water. The absorption at 254 nm wavelength reacts on humid substances and additionally shows the presence of other organic compounds such as oils, aromatics, solvents and other. By means like activated carbon filtration these substances need to be removed. Studies have shown that for most ...

  • Summer storm weakening leads to more persistent heat extremes

    Storm activity in large parts of the US, Europe and Russia significantly calmed down during summers over the past decades, but this is no good news. The weakening of strong winds associated with the jetstream and weather systems prolongs and hence intensifies heat extremes like the one in Russia in 2010 which caused devastating crop failures and wildfires. This is shown in a study to be published ...
