Dr. Stephanie A. Smith is a Product Manager at YSI. She works with customers and a team of engineers to develop water monitoring technology for the scientific community. Her diverse experience in academia, contract research, and as an entrepreneur are all leveraged to bring the best new water monitoring technologies to the marketplace. She discusses a common issue around HABS - harmful algae blooms.
Little bright-green flecks of algae, floating as deep and as far as the eye could see, greeted a group of scientists on the Ohio River Friday. They had pulled up in a boat with their scientific instruments to the spot where the region sucks up much of its drinking water through underwater intakes. Water officials had hoped the situation would have improved by now, but tests show that the algae bloom – the largest ever recorded on the Ohio River – has expanded over the last week from a 500-mi...
Buzzing across Mobile Bay at 40 knots on his red-and-white Kawasaki Ultra LX personal watercraft (PWC), University of South Alabama’s Bret Webb isn’t just another waterborne thrill seeker looking for a good wake to jump. His PWC is a state-of-the-art research vessel, outfitted for bathymetric surveying, multiparameter water quality sampling and sophisticated water velocity studies in the challenging shallow estuarine environment.
It’s incredible what people can accomplish when they set their sights on something bigger than themselves. Check out the latest article from MISSION: Water magazine that follows the story of how the Biosphere Association and Nepal River Conservation Trust made the first openly available survey of Kathmandu’s pollution in the Bagmati...
At 7,100 acres, Emiquon Preserve is one of the largest floodplain restoration projects in the United States outside the Florida Everglades. Located within the Upper Mississippi River system, Emiquon was, until very recently, a vast expanse of plowed fields and rotating crops in the country’s farming heartland. Beginning in 2007, The Nature Conservancy (TNC) began to restore Emiquon from agricultural land to floodplain wetlands.
The city of Indianapolis, Indiana has been monitoring surface water quality of the White River and its tributaries since 1991. Each year the Indianapolis Office of Environmental Services (OES) collects nearly 6,000 samples from 27 locations. Two specialized programs, Continuous Dissolved Oxygen and Critical DO, are designed to collect data during periods when the potential exists for dissolved oxygen problems.
In a collaboration between YSI and the Miami Conservancy District in Southwest Ohio, the water quality of the Mad and Stillwater Rivers in the Dayton, Ohio, area is continuously monitored at gage stations using a sidestream method. The general measurement of turbidity in this “process-type” application correlates turbidity with conductivity during rainfall events...
