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.

The 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 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.

Charles River Algal Blooms Stop Swimming and Launch a Floating Wetland

The Charles River used to be a swimming hotspot for Cambridge and Boston residents. Decades of industrial pollution and nutrient runoff have degraded water quality and eliminated public swimming in the Lower Charles, but a movement is afoot to get Boston and Cambridge back in the water. One step toward the goal of a safely swimmable river—without the need to obtain a permit, as is now necessary—is detecting and managing the harmful algal blooms that appear on the river. An experimental floating wetland and new research and analysis of water quality data that shows a possible effective detection system for algal blooms on the Charles River are two new steps toward the goal of safe, accessible swimming.

Harnessing the Gulf Stream for Renewable Energy

The Gulf Stream, the massive western boundary current off the east coast of North America, moves water from the Gulf of Mexico north and west across the Atlantic Ocean. There’s a lot of energy in that much moving water and researchers are trying to put it to use. Although the Gulf Stream’s path shifts (researchers say it acts like a wiggling garden hose), in a couple of spots, it stays relatively stable. At one such spot off the coast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, researchers have dropped moorings and research instruments to study the current with the eventual goal of harnessing it for renewable energy.
