  • 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 ...

  • Water Quality System

    Let me explain that our basic idea is how better to use the not many typologies (and parameters) of on-line sensors available on market to make low-cost sustainable intelligent monitoring. We all know that the total water quality is related to about fifty of quality measurement analytic parameters, but on-site and in on-line way, it is possible to detect only about ten electro-chemical or ISE ...

  • Monitoring System on ferry measures Delaware Bay water quality data

    This summer, a unique research project using a complex, automated measurement and sampling system on the MV Twin Capes was launched by the University of Delaware College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment (CEOE), with the cooperation and assistance of Delaware River and Bay Authority (DRBA). The SeaKeeper 1000, manufactured and installed aboard the ferry vessel by YSI, collects water quality data ...

  • Sun cream sheds titanium dioxide in the sea, French study suggests

    Swimmers' sun creams deposit titanium dioxide nanoparticles into the sea, where their protective coatings may be washed away, according to a French study. Last year, a team led by Dr Jérôme Labille from Aix-Marseille Université analysed titanium dioxide levels in the water off three French beaches. Their social scientist colleagues counted the number of beach users, asked ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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, ...

  • 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 ...
