Accurate water quality measurement, while basic in many situations, forms the basis for numerous crucial management decisions.
Water quality parameters such as dissolved oxygen, conductivity and chlorophyll are critical to understanding industrial and groundwater processes as well as surface water studies of lakes, rivers, and oceans.
There are so many reasons to measure water quality. Any of the main water quality parameters are linked to important signs of environmental health.
Sensors can measure dissolved oxygen either in the field or lab. DO sensors range in design and function for use in long-term monitoring, BOD tests, or spot sampling.
The NexSens team will assist in water current monitoring by suggesting instruments based on the acoustic doppler principle, or Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCPs), which are most commonly deployed to measure current.
For regulatory or other needs, turbidity monitoring is and important aspect of any dredging project. Dredging affects water clarity and quality and should be monitored in real time to aid with remediation efforts associated with elevated turbidty.
Temperature has a significant impact on water chemistry, and a number of phenomena can occur when a lake’s water temperature and chemical properties reach certain thresholds. The NexSens TS210 Temperature String provides high precision measurements for profiling in lakes, streams, and coastal waters.
Nitrate, phosphate, and other nutrients are increasingly important indicators of the overall health of a water system. Real-time nutrient monitoring with NexSens telemetry systems offers critical insight into these water quality changes over time.
Monitoring dissolved oxygen levels is a key task for any hydroelectric facility. Getting the data on DO in real-time allows for a quick, responsive mitigation plan and a more effective solution to any problems arising from under-aerated water.
