The Solinst Levelogger Biofoul Screen is an affordable option to lengthen the time a Levelogger Edge, Levelogger Junior Edge, or LTC Levelogger Junior can be deployed before maintenance is required.

 

When a Levelogger is deployed for extended periods, especially in coastal and saltwater environments, there is the risk of biofouling. Biofouling on the pressure sensor or conductivity cell can compromise the reliability of the readings.

 

Using the natural anti-fouling characteristics of copper, the Biofoul Screen is designed to reduce the unwanted buildup of microorganisms, plants, algae, or organisms such as barnacles and mussels.

 

The Biofoul Screen consists of a Delrin sleeve wrapped with copper wire. The Biofoul Screen simply slips onto the sensor end of the Levelogger, where it is held in place by friction fit. The screen allows water to freely enter the pressure sensor of any Levelogger, and the conductivity cell of an LTC.

Robotic Fish May Reduce Live Fish Testing Near Hydroelectric Plants

Each year in Germany, as many as 450,000 living fish undergo live animal experiments to test how fish-friendly hydroelectric power plants in the country are. The idea is to discover how readily the fish can move through hydroelectric turbine installations in order to ultimately reduce mortality rates. Of course, subjecting live fish to a potentially deadly test to save others is a bitter irony. And it's one that a team of scientists from the RETERO research project hopes to eventually mitigate with a robotic fish for testing. EM corresponded with Olivier Cleynen and Stefan Hoerner from the University of Magdeburg about the complex flow conditions that set the parameters for the project.

Mobile HAB Lab, Citizen Scientists Building Awareness

News stories about dogs getting sick from harmful algal blooms (HABs) in lakes have caused worry among members of the public this summer more than once. But Regional Science Consortium (RSC) Executive Director Dr. Jeanette Schnars and a dedicated team are bringing awareness about HABs to the public with the Mobile HAB Lab. “We just launched the HAB Citizen Scientists program this year,” explains Dr. Schnars. “It helps us work with people, especially people who spend time at marinas frequently, that are out there all season long.” The season for boaters at Presque Isle, where RSC is located, starts in mid-May and usually continues through the beginning or middle of October.

Handheld Cyanotoxin Detection Technology Prototype

In the battle against harmful algal blooms (HABs), time is important . The need for laboratory equipment and testing is a serious challenge for water managers. This issue caught the eye of Qingshan Wei , an assistant professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at North Carolina State University . “Our research group is interested in developing low-cost sensors,” Wei told EM . “Recently we have been developing sensors for environmental monitoring, and cyanotoxins came to our attention .” Cyanobacteria, which generate HABs, are becoming a challenge across the US . They are a very serious problem in North Carolina, in part due to the weather.
