ORP Field Measurements Reporting Redox Potential (E h ) Correctly

Saturday, 7 April 2018 14:25:01 Europe/London

ORP Field Measurements Reporting Redox Potential (Eh) Correctly

Many practitioners are familiar with using multiparameter water quality meters in the field which incorporate ORP (oxygen-reduction potential) sensors. But ORP measurements are often reported from field probe measurements without the necessary conversion made to standardise readings to a common reference

New Research Proposes Changes to Low Flow Guidance

Friday, 6 April 2018 15:50:28 Europe/London

Using screen volumes to guide low flow purging sampling in DNAPL source zones

A new paper published in the Journal of  Contaminant Hydrology (McMillan et al 2018) has identified the need to be cautious when using indicator water quality parameters to indicate the stability of groundwater chemistry during purging

Planning for Groundwater Level Monitoring in Bangladesh

Tuesday, 30 January 2018 00:00:37 Europe/London

Trialling a new Bluetooth communication system with dataloggers

My last blog on the work of Groundwater Relief (www.groundwater-relief.org ) in Bangladesh generated considerable interest. So, here’s an update along with some observations on new equipment for downloading data from water level logging devices.

Groundwater Sampling – Are we doing it right?

Wednesday, 29 November 2017 21:44:14 Europe/London

Groundwater Sampling – Are we doing it right?

I was recently invited to lead a groundwater sampling workshop at the Janet Watson meeting of the Geological Society on 7th November 2017.

This was a fascinating 2-day conference covering everything from conceptual models and risk assessment to treatment technologies, guidance, and regulation. It also addressed the need for us all to rationalize and explain risk in a coherent and understandable way to a non-technical and risk-averse society.

Big Data and Barometric Compensation

Thursday, 2 November 2017 14:53:58 Europe/London

Is global barometric data accuracy good enough?

I was recently sent some information about a research group working on the design of a low cost data logger system for measuring water levels. This is conceptualised as a total pressure logger, programmed and managed using smartphone technology.
