Remote New Zealand lake found to be among the world's clearest

For decades, scientists have been fascinated by the color and clarity of water. Very high water clarity is extremely rare in nature. So it is was with some surprise that a team of scientists from the National Institute of Water and the Atmosphere in New Zealand recently discovered that Blue Lake, in Nelson Lakes National Park on the country’s South Island, is the visually clearest freshwater lake ever reported. Mark Gall, a scientist at NIWA, said colleague Rob Merrilees had seen Blue Lake and thought it could be comparable to Pupu Springs, another South Island lake that was the clearest reported freshwater at the time.

Zebra-Tech’s Hydro-Wiper bolts on to maintain optical sensors in any condition

The world is an unpredictable place full of fouling and entanglements that can send just about anyone astray. Water quality data too can be severely compromised by unforgiving conditions and unpredictable events. John Radford, Zebra-Tech’s founder, learned firsthand how fouling could degrade data quality to the point of being unusable. “Whilst working for the National Institute of Atmospheric Research in New Zealand, we had constant issues trying to make long-term measurements of suspended sediment concentrations in shallow coastal water,” he said. “Fouling of the sensors between site visits caused fatal degradation of the data quality. Attempts were made to develop a method for mathematically correcting the data, but these were unsuccessful.

First Environmental Monitoring System For Baltimore’s Inner Harbor

Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and the rivers that flow into it are important sources of water to Chesapeake Bay, popular recreation sites and the targets of an ambitious clean-up plan. But the city has for some time lacked an environmental monitoring system for tracking water quality in the harbor continuously. That is about to change, thanks to a collaboration between the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It will lead to the new installation of a suite of sensors that will provide the public and scientists with the first comprehensive, real time look at water quality in the harbor.
