This supplies the majority of the region’s drinking water as part of the SEQ ...

  • Sensors in Space Allow Daily Coastal Water Quality Monitoring

    ST. PETERSBURG, Florida, August 31, 2007 (ENS) - Using data from instruments aboard two NASA satellites, Florida researchers have created a way to map the fleeting changes in coastal water quality from space - something that has long evaded researchers and coastal managers relying only on ground-based measurements. This information has direct application for resource managers working on ...

These new sensors will provide early warning of storm runoff or other poor ...

  • 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 ...

  • The aim of 3iTOX is the development of: a biological and chemical sensor platform for monitoring water quality within low detection bounds (limits).

    By monitoring the quality of surface water during previous years a decision has been made to use more frequently biomonitors based on toxicity. Biomonitors then function as an early warning system for water companies, so they can stop the intake of surface water once the measurement made by the biomonitor has given reason to do so . Because of the potentially large number of substances in surface ...

  • Product Focus: Floating Oil on Water Sensor

    Oil contamination in any watercourse can have a profound effect on the environment, as well as the way in which water is treated. If visible oil manages to slip into a river, local wildlife can feel the impact. In an extreme scenario, floating oil can influence the food chain and can kill a host of animals and plants, even if the pollution is in a small quantity. Meanwhile, ...

  • Cheap paper nano-sensor detects water toxins

    Scientists have used nanotechnology to turn paper into a sensor that can detect toxins in drinking water. The China–US team dipped normal filter paper into a solution containing carbon nanotubes — which can conduct electricity — and antibodies to microcystin-LR, a common and dangerous toxin. They dried the paper and repeated the process until enough nanotubes were present to render it ...
