Eliminating the need for multiple sensors to accommodate large variation in turbidity, the Turbidity Xchange automatically adjusts to the appropriate range while in operation. As a result, high accuracy is achieved over the entire 0-3000 NTU range. The sensor features an integrated wiper for long-term deployments in sediment rich areas.

Sensor accuracy is quoted as a percentage of reading. A sensor measuring 900 NTU is accurate to +/-18 NTU, while measuring 500 NTU it is accurate to +/- 10 NTU, based on its +/- 2% specification. As the measurement nears 0 NTU, the accuracy specification also includes a floor. For example, the same sensor measuring at or below 1 NTU would have an error of +/- 0.2 NTU.

Turbidity Xchange is a field-swappable turbidity sensor. Each sensor-head contains embedded electronics where calibration coefficients are stored. Sensor-heads can be moved from instrument to instrument without impacting field accuracy.

Assessing Cumulative Risk From Water Pollutants

New research from scientists at the Environmental Working Group (EWG) shows that an approach that assesses cumulative risk from water contaminants could save lives. EWG senior scientist Tasha Stoiber spoke with EM about how the team developed the innovative new approach . “Our organization has worked extensively on tap water over the years, and an updated version of our tap water database was just released in 2017,” explains Dr. Stoiber. “We've been thinking about new ways to analyze that data.” Right now, the risk from contaminants in water quality is assessed one at a time—but that really doesn't comport with reality.

Custom ROV Helps Protect Rockfish in Puget Sound

Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW ) scientists are using a customized underwater robotic vehicle (remotely operated vehicle or ROV) called the Saab Seaeye Falcon on a critical conservation study of threatened and imperiled rockfish. Dr. Dayv Lowry , a Senior Marine Fish Research Scientist, spoke to EM about using the ROV to facilitate rockfish conservation and recovery in the Puget Sound. “In the Pacific Northwest, the Washington and Oregon coast, several species of Rockfish have been fished for decades, with up- and downswings in abundance,” explains Dr. Lowry. “When fishing pressure decreases, and the stocks start to recover, we have gone back to fishing—the pendulum has swung over the years.

Monitoring Wilson Lake All Year Long from Underwater

Since the summer of 2018, Wilson Lake in Maine hosted a data buoy that contains a set of long-term environmental data loggers. The rugged buoy was specially designed for year-round use, monitoring dissolved oxygen and temperature even when it's locked in ice. University of Maine, Farmington biology professor Dr. Rachel Hovel spoke to EM about the Wilson Lake buoy and her team's work with its data. “The ability to generate a long-term data set and collect these data over the entire year is really useful, both in the classroom and for asking questions about what's happening in this lake,” comments Dr. Hovel. Although the Wilson Lake buoy has been deployed for just over a year, these kinds of deployments have the potential to be very long-standing. Dr.
