  • Measuring water from space

    Observations from satellites now allow scientists to monitor changes to water levels in the sea, in rivers and lakes, in ice sheets and even under the ground. As the climate changes, this information will be crucial for monitoring its effects and predicting future impacts in different regions. Sea level rise in one of the major consequences of global warming, but it is much more difficult to ...

  • Measuring methane

    At the UK's first viable compact anaerobic digester (AD) plant aimed at local food waste treatment, a Geotech GA3000 fixed biogas analyser monitors methane (CH4), carbon dioxide (CO2), oxygen (O2) and hydrogen sulphide (H2S). The plant, a modular scalable AD system, unveiled by React Environmental in July 2012 at Llangadog, Carmarthenshire, can handle some 1,000 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Measurement of lime levels in drinking water & wastewater

    As lime is a product derived from the Earth, it is fitting that many of its uses also benefit the Earth. In fact, the second leading use of lime is in environmental applications, including drinking water and wastewater. OPTIFLEX is widely used to indicate lime levels in storage silos. It usually replaces non-reliable ultrasonic or electromechanical systems that are expensive to maintain. Lime ...


  • 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, ...

  • Ultrasonic depth sensor to measure water levels

    The Dutch algae control company LG Sonic introduced an ultrasonic depth sensor to give the customers real-time insight in the water levels which allows them to adequately deal with water level fluctuations. Reservoirs used for industrial processes or the production of drinking water often deal with strong water level fluctuations. Due to events of high demand and evaporation, water levels in ...

  • EPA and Utilities to Promote Water Performance Measures for Utilities

    (Washington, D.C.) EPA Assistant Administrator for Water Benjamin H. Grumbles has signed a statement of support with six national associations to promote recommended utility performance measures and encourage the use of these tools and 10 management attributes by utilities around the country.  The '10 Attributes of Effectively Managed Water Sector Utilities' provide a reference point for ...

  • Corporate water accounting - methods and tools for measuring water use and impacts

    Corporate Water Accounting is a joint effort of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the CEO Water Mandate, which aims to assess existing and emerging water accounting methods and tools being used in the private sector. The goals of the effort focus on elucidating commonalities and differences among emerging methods and practice, identifying gaps and challenges and ...

  • Measuring global soil changes

    Global change is increasingly affecting important terrestrial ecosystem functions such as the filtering and buffering capacity of soils, the supply of clean water, soil fertility, and consequently, the production of food, feed, and fiber. Recent studies and reports from the United Nations indicate that water and soil resources are both heavily under pressure. Worldwide about 2 billion ha of land ...

  • Sustainable management of water in an arid region: water supply measures compared

    Water shortages in water stressed regions can be alleviated by building large infrastructures, such as water transfer systems or saltwater desalination plants, which increase the supply of water. However, a new study, which compares the environmental impact of water supply alternatives in a region of Spain, concludes that reducing water use, rather than increasing supplies, is a more sustainable ...

  • Extreme Mining Extreme Measures

    Undoubtedly, the biggest challenge of deep level mining is providing a safe environment for miners. Today, gold and platinum mines descend as far as 5km below surface in some cases. In this extreme environment, virgin rock temperatures often exceed 60°C, requiring sophisticated cooling methods and equipment to reduce temperatures to safe levels for miners to work in. Due to the ...
