  • Tourist cruise ships increase atmospheric pollution in the Arctic

    Levels of air pollution significantly increase on the island of Svalbard in the Norwegian Arctic when tourist cruise ships are present, according to a recent study. With shipping levels rising in the region, the researchers recommend that stricter emissions regulations are introduced in order to limit the impact of pollution on the Arctic environment. Ship traffic is a major source of ...

  • Allweiler Pumps approved for explosive atmospheres. New ATEX certificate for dust

    For many years progressing cavity pumps, peristaltic pumps, and macerators manufactured by Allweiler AG have fulfilled the requirements for use in potentially explosive gaseous atmospheres when used properly. But now – since end 2008 – they are also certified for use in dust-laden explosive atmospheres. The ATEX certificate confirms that Allweiler pumps now fully comply with EU directive 94/9/EC ...

  • Soil climate monitoring in Antarctica

    Antarctica, the coldest place on earth, has an area of about 14 million sq. km. About 98% of the continent is covered by ice, which averages about 2100 m thick. This vast ice sheet contains the earth’s largest fresh water reserve. Of the ice-free ground, only 0.3% is available for soils to form. Currently there are seven soil climate stations in Antarctica, which monitor a range of ambient ...

  • Screening soil moisture conditions reveals an increased risk of drought in a Swedish drainage basin

    The risk of drought in the Norrström drainage basin, Sweden, increased during the 20th century, a new study has found. As the frequency of the dry periods increased, less water was available in the landscape for agriculture and for the resupply of groundwater — despite an increase in precipitation in the area over the same period. The researchers reached this conclusion after screening ...

  • Global ocean data for global monitoring

    Local weather conditions have always been linked to global climatic developments. Global climatic factors – such as El Nino or La Nina in the Pacific Ocean - have an impact not only on neighbouring continents; their influence is also felt in regions as far removed as continental Europe. With the onset of global climate change, its influence on local weather is getting more distinct. Severe ...

  • Dozens of new satellites planned to monitor climate

    An international strategy for deployment of dozens of new satellites to help scientists better understand global warming got a boost on Wednesday as the world's space and meteorological agencies gave their support to the World Meteorological Organization proposal at a high-level space conference.  Approval came at the end of the two day meeting last week in New Orleans, Louisiana attended by top ...

  • Air pollution monitoring model takes off in Australia

    “The Air Pollution Model (TAPM) increases our ability to pinpoint pollutant behaviour in a wider range of atmospheric conditions,” says CSIRO’s Dr Peter Hurley. ”Over the coming years the new model will continue to fill a gap between simple air pollution dispersion models and the much more complex earth system models such as The Australian Community Climate and Earth-System Simulator (ACCESS).” ...

  • Gas detection solutions for monitoring compressed breathing air

    At first glance the physiological demands of the firefighter, the scuba diver and the hospital patient have little in common. One is trained to deal with fire and rescue, one swims underwater and one is concerned with either regaining or improving their health. Yet all three depend to some extent on a safe source of compressed breathing air. In the case of the firefighter, portable breathing sets ...

  • Environmental Sensing and Monitoring Technologies: Global Markets

    INTRODUCTION PRINCIPAL TRENDS There are two principal trends of note in the environmental sensing and monitoring business. The first is the technological revolution in the design and engineering of individual sensors and sensor components. The trend in terms of individual sensors is toward miniaturization. Making sensors smaller lowers material costs and energy requirements and makes large ...


  • 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 ...


  • Italian Cruise Ship to Carry Air Pollution Monitoring Station

    BRUSSELS, Belgium, November 3, 2005 (ENS) - The European Commission and the Italian cruise line Costa Crociere have launched a new way of monitoring human generated pollution of the atmosphere that the Commission says is essential to improving understanding of climate change. The holiday guests cruising the Mediterranean will probably never see it, but an automatic air pollution monitoring ...

  • Voyage to Southern Ocean to monitor greenhouse gas air-sea fluxes

    Scientists have set off from the Chilean port of Punta Arenas to spend 42 days amid the high winds and big waves of the Southern Ocean, where they will make groundbreaking measurements to explain how large amounts of climate-affecting gases move between atmosphere and sea, and vice-versa. The cruise should provide important information on factors controlling the flux of the greenhouse gas carbon ...

  • New Product Alert – VICONOX NO2, NO, CO and Visibility Monitor

    More and more modern vehicles emit less and less CO so there is a growing international requirement to measure the level of both CO and NO/NO2 in road tunnels. The VICONOX provides an elegant solution to these requirements by measuring NO2, NO, CO, visibility and temperature within a single sensor. Designed specifically for use in tunnels, the VICONOX tunnel monitor uses a combination of ...
