Overview
The TriOS NICO is a low-cost UV photometer for online measurement of nitrate in lakes/rivers, drinking water, and wastewater applications. The four detection channels enable a precise optical determination of nitrate by absorption, taking into account turbidity and organic substances that pose a problem for many products currently on the market. An internal temperature correction additionally increases stability of the measured values.

Easy Configuration
The TriOS NICO is compatible with the G2 interface box, allowing fast and easy configuration of the sensors using a web browser. The sensor can be easily integrated into existing process control systems and external data loggers using the native RS-485 Modbus RTU output, and the optional W55 V2 wiper reduces maintenance intervals by cleaning the optics before each measurement.

San Francisco Bay’s Nutrient Phenomena

From the gold rushes to the birth of Silicon Valley, the San Francisco Bay Area is known for welcoming swaths of people looking for a new frontier of culture and natural beauty. It has had a front-row seat to some of America’s most rapid industrialization and population growth for the past 200 years and is now home to over seven million people. Tourism booms as people from all around the world come to see the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and the expansive bay that lies beneath. But the bay is not just for looks. It plays an essential role in supporting modern California living--and we are not just talking about surfing.  Water from every toilet flush, shower and load of laundry is treated and pumped back into the bay.

Caring for the Chesapeake: Supporting the Iconic Bay Starts with Good Monitoring Data

The Chesapeake Bay is enormous: the Bay and its tidal tributaries have 11,684 miles of shoreline—more than the entire U.S. west coast. It is the largest of more than 100 estuaries in the United States and the third largest in the world. The Bay itself is about 200 miles long, stretching from Havre de Grace, Maryland, to Virginia Beach, Virginia. But the Chesapeake Bay isn’t just enormous--it’s enormously important. The  Chesapeake Bay Program  reports that its watershed covers about 64,000 square miles and is home to more than 18 million people, 10 million of which live along or near the Bay’s shores.

Treating Harmful Algal Blooms: A Natural Progression

Some of us happen upon the subject of our life’s work by accident, some of us are born into it, and some of us ease into it over time. For Tom Johengen, Research Scientist for Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research (CIGLR) and Director of Michigan Sea Grant , choosing to study Harmful Algal Blooms (HAB) was “a natural progression” from his days as a grad student investigating best management practices for controlling nonpoint source nutrient pollution. “I’ve been the research scientist with CIGLR since my postdoc in 1991, 31 years, and I’ve been the Director of Michigan Sea Grant for the past 3 years. When I began my postdoc with CIGLR we were just starting to study the impacts of the recently invaded zebra mussels.
