  • Water quality protected during dredging of Somerset Levels

    A special monitoring system is helping protect water quality on the Somerset Levels and Moors where a major dredging operation is under way following severe flooding. The system, which was supplied by OTT Hydrometry and installed by Wavelength Environmental, is designed to protect the river ecology by issuing email alerts if water quality deteriorates beyond pre-set conditions. Any such alerts ...

  • Ultrasonic water level sensors monitor flooding in the Philippines

    A variety of factors make the Philippines, and especially the Manila region, among the most flood prone in the world. Tropical rains flow rapidly from mountain uplands to the Manila basin where dense urbanization accelerates run-off. To make matters worse, Manila is built on lowlands that are getting lower due to ground water extraction and the weight of urban concrete and steel. As a result, ...

  • Satellite measurements show hidden water content of snow

    As spring arrives, many people are generally interested in the snow vanishing. Others are more interested in the water that is stored in the snow layer. Satellite measurements can show the extent and water content of the snow coverage, and where it will melt. Scientists from SMHI are part of a European research project aiming to develop new, simpler ways of using satellite data about snow and ...

  • New ways of measuring our water environment

    General Quality Assessment figures from the Environment Agency released this week show that 76 per cent of all UK rivers in the UK achieved ‘good’ or better status for chemical water quality in 2007. From 2008, the new European Water Framework Directive replaces General Quality Assessment,  which means that the way of measuring the quality of our water bodies has changed. As well as rivers, ...
