Ponsel launched in 1948 in Versailles as a compilation of engineers working with researchers from France’s first government agriculture and water quality agencies.
Since then, the manufacturer has built water quality instruments. “Ponsel has the culture to develop robust instruments, to provide open communications protocols and to be specialized in optical measurement,” said Xavier Broise, export business development manager for Aqualabo Group, which now owns Ponsel.
Ponsel’s latest offering are the Digisens smart sensors that give users the capability to connect to a data logger or handheld interface and gather readings.
The sensors are designed to ensure quality data and compatibility for simple integration into monitoring systems.Read More
Since 2003 harmful bacteria Escherichia coli (E. coli) levels have created a health risk to recreational users in Boulder Creek. Boulder Creek has been designated as an impaired stream and is not meeting an EPA health-based water quality standard.
Concentrations of E. coli increase from the mouth of Boulder Canyon to the University of Colorado-Boulder and beyond based upon data collected by the City of Boulder according to information published by the CU Independent and the Boulder Camera . EM spoke to environmental engineer Art Hirsch of the Boulder Waterkeeper , who is advocating for greater accountability from all entities that own property abutting the stream.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Māno a , in collaboration with other partners, recently deployed a new ocean acidification (OA) monitoring site in Fagatele Bay National Marine Sanctuary , American Samoa. Derek Manzello , a coral ecologist with NOAA’s Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) in Florida, is the lead PI of ACCRETE: the Acidification, Climate and Coral Reef Ecosystems Team at AOML. Dr. Manzello connected with EM about the deployment.
“ACCRETE encompasses multiple projects that all aim to better understand the response of coral reef ecosystems to climate change and/or ocean acidification,” explains Dr.Read More
