  • AQMesh scaled against reference demonstrates accuracy in new location – Barcelona, Spain

    Through partnership with IDAEA-CSIC two AQMesh pods were co-located with a reference station and scaled locally in Barcelona (ref. Advanced user mode), providing R2 of 0.97 for NO and 0.89 for NO2. One pod was then moved to a second reference point within the city to establish repeatability of results using the scaling factors derived from the first ...

  • Landfill and Biogas gas monitoring

    Landfill and biogas provide a source of readily available and renewable energy. However, as a source of energy care has to be taken to understand and quantify impurities in the raw gas that can have an effect on either the amount of energy products, or contaminants that can foul the energy generators (siloxanes). ETG can provide analysis solutions to qualify and quantify these impurities. Gas ...

  • LiDAR monitoring coastal erosion

    Subject to intense meteorological events, including windstorms and heavy waves, Corsica has seen significant erosion of its coastline in the past 25 years and a decline in the surface area occupied by seagrass beds. Key to the success of this new initiative will be the Hawk Eye II scanning device, with its capability to capture precision data from both land and seabed terrain simultaneously, in ...


  • 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 ...
