Wastewater Instrumentation White Papers & Case Studies

  1. Color, Turbidity And Philosophy
    1/28/2015

    When we humans look at objects we describe them in terms of color. We say that an apple is red or a leaf is green. To us color is an attribute just as surely as the mass or dimensions of an object. But the fact is that color is a pure human construct. Take away the human and it does not exist.
