  • NASA satellite improves pollution monitoring

    NASA scientists improved watershed pollution monitoring models by incorporating satellite and ground-based observations of precipitation. The NASA data replaces weather station observations, and will allow states to monitor non-point pollution and improve water quality. The research team, led by Joseph Nigro of Science Systems and Applications, Inc., incorporated two NASA products into a computer ...

  • Seaweed could effectively monitor metal pollution in coastal waters

    Seaweed may prove to be a valuable tool to monitor metal pollution in coastal waters, new research has found. Spiral wrack seaweed (Fucus spiralis), which is common to rocky coastlines across western Europe, was found to contain concentrations of metals that rose and fell in line with concentrations in the surrounding seawater. This makes it a good candidate for inclusion in the European ...

  • New York Organizations Use EPA Grants to Monitor Water Pollution in their Communities

    With support of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency "citizen science" grants, two New York community groups have begun their final weeks of summer water pollution monitoring. The Bronx River Alliance and the Sparkill Creek Watershed Alliance have been using $25,000 grants to monitor water quality on tributaries of the New York/New Jersey Harbor. The groups are testing for the bacteria ...

  • New Jersey Organizations Use EPA Grants to Monitor Water Pollution in their Communities

    With support of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency "citizen science" grants, two New Jersey community groups have begun their final weeks of summer water pollution monitoring. The New York/New Jersey Baykeeper and Friends of the Bonsal Preserve have been using $25,000 grants to monitor water quality on tributaries of the New York/New Jersey Harbor.

  • Successful airborne pollution compliance monitoring of ships at sea

    Despite new legislation that requires ships to burn low sulphur marine oil in EU and US coastal waters, the economic benefits of continuing to use inexpensive, high-sulphur fuels, combined with the relatively small risk of getting caught, means that many ships are flouting the rules. However, this could be about to change as a real-time, airborne pollution detection system based around a pair of ...

  • Monitoring diffuse pollution in EU river catchment areas

    In recent decades, discharges of pollutants from waste water treatment plants and industry have been successfully identified and in many cases reduced, but assessing inputs of diffuse pollution from land, and the degree of retention of pollutants, such as nitrogen and phosphorus, within surface water systems is harder to achieve. A recent study has compared different methods used to estimate ...

  • Online Water Toxicity Monitoring
