Details

Blue-green algae (a. k. a. cyanobacteria) monitoring is of growing interest due to the problems some species can present through the production of toxins and compounds that deteriorate the quality of drinking water and through the formation of blooms. Blue-green algae are of interest for ecosystem studies and monitoring as well, where they may represent the most abundant primary producer. Click on the YSI 6431AF Spec Sheet above to learn more about the blue-green algae sensor methodology.

The YSI 6431AF blue-green algae sensor is fully compatible with all YSI 6-series sondes equipped with optical ports.

YSI's optical sensors use an integrated wiping system to provide anti-fouling in the most hostile environments. Durable mechanical features include a non-corroding titanium wiper shaft, replaceable wiper shaft seal, and a new switch controlled wiper parking system to prevent mis-parking.

Monitoring for Biodiversity with 1st Commercial eDNA Service in the UK

Surveying waterways for defining habitats and ranges may soon be much quicker and easier thanks to the applied use of environmental DNA (eDNA). Traditional studies have relied upon the slow, difficult, and somewhat haphazard process of catching fauna in the field using any number of techniques. This is even more difficult than usual when the target of the study is an endangered animal. A new company NatureMetrics , which spun-out from the University of East Anglia (UEA) , is taking on this challenge with its eDNA tech. “We were founded to work on developing high-throughput ways of measuring biodiversity, and environmental DNA is one element of that,” Dr. Kat Bruce , the director of NatureMetrics, remarks to EM.

Eel Excitement: At Hudson River NERR, Environmental Monitoring Takes A Slippery Turn

“I remember how I first became fascinated with eels,” says Chris Bowser, Education Coordinator for the Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve (HRNERR) and Hudson River Estuary Program (HREP) of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, in partnership with Cornell University’s NYS Water Resource Institute . “I was doing a talk on a ship called the Clearwater. There was a trawl net catch on the deck and I picked up one of the things in the catch. It was a piece of trash, a plastic toy truck with barnacles growing on it. I was speaking to the audience and they seemed really riveted! I was thinking, ‘I must be giving a really good talk.

Washington Leading on Water Quality with New Winery Permit

In 2014, the Department of Ecology (DOE) in the State of Washington began to work on water quality standards related to wineries in the Yakima Valley and the rest of the state. The specific concern is the handling of wastewater from winemaking; this kind of wastewater is toxic. Water into wine, and waste Winery wastewater is high in sugar and filled with suspended solids such as grape plant matter and juice. Microbes can digest those solids, but only if there's enough oxygen in the water. In wastewater from winemaking, there isn't enough oxygen for those microbes—biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) far exceeds supply. Consider this. To use the wastewater for irrigation , BOD must be below 50 .
