Real-Time Conductivity Monitoring Estimates Chloride Levels In Minnesota Watershed By Using The Aqua TROLL 200
Monitoring deicing chemical levels can help researchers, city governments, and regulatory agencies understand runoff impacts on surface water, groundwater, and surrounding environments.
Determination Of Pesticide Residues In Honey, By An Automated QuEChERS Solution
The QuEChERS (Quick-Easy-Cheap-Effective-Rugged-Safe) sample extraction method was developed for the determination of pesticide residues in agricultural commodities.
Application Note: YSI Real-Time Water Quality Monitoring And The IPSWATCH-EMPACT Program
The Ipswich and Parker Rivers watersheds lie only a short
distance north of Boston, MA. The first settlements in these
watersheds began in the early 1600s. Since that time, residents
have relied heavily on the natural resources of the Parker and
Ipswich Rivers, their coastal estuaries and Plum Island Sound,
which is known as the Great Marsh. This ecosystem has been
designated and protected by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts
as an Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC).
Application Note: Simultaneous Determination Of Total Bound Nitrogen (TNb) And Total Organic Carbon (TOC) In Aqueous Samples
Total bound nitrogen (TNb) consists of dissolved ammonia, nitrates, nitrites, amines, and other organic nitrogen-containing compounds. TNb measurements represent an alternative to Total Kjeldahl Nitrogen (TKN) analysis for rapid screening of industrial wastewater, drinking water,agricultural run-off, and surface waters.

Control Of Active Chlorine Disinfection By-Products (DBPs) Of Drinking Water Using The THM Plus Method
Determining trihalomethane levels using standard analytical methods requires expensive equipment and highly qualified personnel, which also means that analysis costs are very high. For these reasons, trihalomethane analysis poses a serious problem for companies that supply drinking water. Read the full application note to learn how two drinking water laboratories improved quality control of water delivered to end users.
(E)-2-Nonenal In Beer
Numerous compounds contribute to changes in beer flavor as it becomes stale. One of these compounds, (E)-2-nonenal, has been investigated as a major source of the papery/cardboard flavor that develops in aged beer.
New Water Turbidity Measurement Technology — The US Experience
The amount of insoluble matter present in drinking water is an essential quality indicator. Silt, sand, bacteria, spores, and chemical precipitates all contribute to the cloudiness or turbidity of water. Drinking water (DW) which is highly turbid can be unpalatable and unsafe. Consumption of even low concentrations of certain bacteria and other microorganisms can cause serious health effects. Consequently, an accurate and sensitive measurement of turbidity is vital for ensuring that drinking water is free of these contaminants.
Application Note: YSI Water Quality Monitoring Buoys Help Connecticut DOT Protect The Housatonic River
When replacement of the Sikorski Bridge spanning the
Housatonic River was authorized, Paul Corrente and the
Connecticut Department of Transportation (CT-DOT) set
about the design and development of a water quality monitoring
program to monitor the contractor’s in-water activities to
insure full protection of
the river from perturbation
