  • The capillary fringe: monitoring and remediation in this neglected zone

    Much of the capillary fringe is fully-water-saturated but water is held under negative pressure. Dissolved contaminants migrate laterally as under the water table and residual LNAPLs such as gasoline occur in the capillary fringe. This is becoming more significant as ethanol-blended gasoline may be released into the subsurface. The behavior of ethanol fuels in the subsurface will highlight recent ...

  • 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 ...

  • New indicator proposed for assessing treated wastewater quality

    The chemical, physical and microbiological characteristics of effluents from wastewater treatment plants are regulated by national and EU law for discharge into surface waters or reuse, but a wide variety of treatment options exist and monitoring all pollutants may be expensive. A new study from Italy proposes a new Wastewater Polishing Index (WWPI) to help decision makers and environmental ...

  • New Discoveries Improve Climate Models

    New discoveries on how underwater ridges impact the ocean's circulation system will help improve climate projections. An underwater ridge can trap the flow of cold, dense water at the bottom of the ocean. Without the ridge, deepwater can flow freely and speed up the ocean circulation pattern, which generally increases the flow of warm surface water. Warm water on the ocean's ...
