Details

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.

Steel Chips Promising New Stormwater Treatment for E. Coli Removal

Escherichia coli (E. coli) in stormwater runoff is a perennial problem in South Dakota—and in many other places in the US and around the world. Especially in places where drought makes every drop of rainfall count, it's crucial to remove harmful bacteria such as E. coli from stormwater. Researchers from the South Dakota State University (SDSU) Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering may have a promising—and cost-efficient—new solution to this problem: steel chips. After the storm A good rain can make it seem like everything is fresh and clean—in part because stormwater washes dirt and grime that covers streets down into sewer systems. That includes animal and human waste, and E. coli bacteria.

Water-Filter Pitchers Not Equally Effective at Removing Microcystins

Harmful algal blooms (HABs) and the toxins they produce, threaten drinking water safety worldwide, and here in the US, we are becoming more aware of the issue as HABs are reported across the country. Microcystins, the most common toxins arising from HABs, can put animals and humans at risk. Human reactions to microcystins include mild skin rash, respiratory illness, kidney or liver damage and even death. If you use a water-filter pitcher to ensure harmful microcystins aren't present in your drinking water, recent research has both good news and bad news for you. First, the bad news: these water-filter pitchers vary substantially in how effectively they can remove harmful contaminants.

Soft, 3D-Printable Robot Exploits Temperature Changes in Water to Self-Propel

Imagine fleets of compact, self-propelling robots quietly making their way through the world's oceans, surveilling marine life and monitoring conditions, each one moving without a power supply or even an engine. It may sound like science fiction, but thanks to a team of researchers from ETH Zurich and Caltech led by Professor Kristina Shea , this new concept for self-propelling, swimming robots that exploit in-water temperature fluctuations to move, has now undergone a successful proof-of-concept study. “We had already developed 4D printed deployable structures that use the combination of shape memory polymer strips and tunable, bi-stable joints to reconfigure themselves from flat structures into different forms,” explains Professor Shea.
