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
Enormous amounts of excess nitrogen hit water bodies all over the globe, including the U.S., due to runoff from agricultural and other human activities. This nitrogen can cause dead zones and harmful algal growth. Before it reaches the ocean, microbes can process and remove some of it from stream sediments, connected aquifers and tidal freshwater zones. Thanks to this process, coasts can have a decreased likelihood of harmful algal blooms.
Keeping coastal waters clean is important for many reasons, including the fact that about 60% of the U.S. population lives on coasts. But despite the importance of these nitrogen processes, researchers have not fully investigated how they work.Read More
The Chesapeake Bay is the site of recurring seasonal dead zones: areas of low dissolved oxygen where aquatic life struggles to survive if it can at all. In 2020, a dead zone in the Maryland portion of the bay was one of the smallest since 1985, when record keeping began. The hypoxic area in the Virginia portion of the bay was smaller and briefer than many years previous.
But the problem isn’t gone yet, and looking forward, climate change will play a big role in determining the size and severity of dead zones throughout the bay. It could make it harder to get hypoxia under control in some places.Read More
