Sulfate concentrations continue to decline in Northeast U.S. streams, according to a new analysis of 40-years' worth of water quality data from relatively pristine watersheds across the country. The analysis shows the effectiveness of the Clean Air Act and the value of a unique stream monitoring network that has faced frequent threats of having its budget cut.
The U.S. Geological Survey's Hydrologic Benchmark Network covers stream sites in watersheds that have seen little disturbance from humans through activities like urban development, agriculture or dam building. The HBN launched in 1963 and once had as many as 59 sites, but has since been slimmed down to 37. A USGS gauge measures streamflow at each site and a smaller set of sites are sampled for water chemistry.Read More
For most humans, mayflies seem like a nuisance, hovering over the waterways as we try to enjoy them. However, for anyone hoping to monitor the health of watersheds, mayflies are important aquatic species—and now, a digital version of the mayfly is helping some scientists keep an eye on the water. Research scientist Dr. Scott Ensign , who serves as Assistant Director of the Stroud Water Research Center , spoke to EM about how the digital mayfly technology developed.
“ Shannon Hicks is the engineer who started developing the Mayfly six or seven years ago,” explains Dr. Ensign.Read More
Time is of the essence when it comes to tracking algal blooms, and people everywhere are looking for solutions. In Florida, scientists from Florida Atlantic University Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute (HBOI) recently trialed a solar-powered, algae-tracking sail boat developed by Navocean , Inc. Dr. Jordon Beckler of Florida Atlantic University (FAU) directs HBOI's Geochemistry and Geochemical Sensing Lab and spoke to EM about the trials and the boat.
"This boat is so amazing when you see it in action," remarks Dr. Beckler. "Navocean originally contacted me a few years back about a demonstration when I was over at my previous institution in West Florida, and we brainstormed some scenarios for employing the boat for harmful algae bloom monitoring.Read More
