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.

Lufft WS800: Introducing A Station that Can Weather the Storm

The Lufft WS800 Multi-Parameter Weather Station measures a full suite of atmospheric parameters that provides all-encompassing data on the local environment, including a one-of-a-kind lightning detector. This compact, cost-effective sensor simultaneously measures air temperature, humidity, pressure, precipitation, solar radiation, lightning, and wind with an integrated electronic compass. An internal fan and heater reduce the effects of external influences for accurate measurements during long-term deployments. The sensor can be easily mounted on a 2-inch diameter pipe above any local obstructions with the included bracket mount, U-bolts, and 10-meter cable.  Settings for the unit can be adjusted using the latest UMB-ConfigTool.

Small-Scale Monitoring for Large-Scale Impacts: Building Storm Resilience in the Newfound Lake Region

Monitoring Newfound Lake's tributaries allows the NLRA to better understand how these systems are changing and helps to quantify the impact that development is having on water quality in Newfound Lake. (Credit: NLRA) As many resource managers and conservation groups can attest, their work serves both the environment and the surrounding communities. Dynamic and healthy ecosystems can become center points for towns, cities, and entire regions—such is the case in the Newfound Lake Region, located in central New Hampshire. The  Newfound Lake Region Association  (NLRA) knows just how critical the preservation of the lake and surrounding watershed is for all members of the region.
