  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Monitoring CO2 storage in Australian gas field

    Australia has launched the first carbon sequestration project in the southern hemisphere with the help of technology developed by researchers at the US Department of Energy (DOE).

  • OTT launches new low-maintenance Phosphate monitor

    OTT Hydrometry has launched an advanced version of its ‘Cycle-P’ remote Phosphate monitor for measuring dissolved Phosphate in rivers, lakes and reservoirs. The new ‘HydroCycle PO4’ uses less reagents per test than its predecessor and the reagents have a longer shelf-life. “This means that the HydroCycle PO4 can be left in the field, for even longer periods,” ...

  • 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 ...
