As a result of a combination of the European Communities (EC) Bathing Water and Urban Waste Water Treatment Directives, the option of discharging biologically treated effluent into estuaries and shallow coasteal waters through short outfalls is being increasingly considered. This has meant that...
An in situ optical sensing technique is used to measure and classify suspensions of oil-in-water in the concentration range 0–100 μL/L. Correct classification is shown for concentrations of 10 μL/L and above; the lower detection limit reached to date is 0.3 μL/L. The sensor system is based...
The aim of this paper is to show how the process of detection of cyanobacteria can be automated by means of a digital image processing package. In Britain's lakes and reservoirs, the occurrence of nine different species of cyanobacteria is of interest This paper determines a way to detect and...
The sorption of the pyrethroid insecticide, cypermethrin, on clean mineral particles, mineral particles coated with aquatic humic substances, and suspended particles from the Tees Estuary was studied. The sorption process was dominated by the organic carbon or organic matter on the particle...
Pesticides are often produced and stored in large quantities near rivers posing a potential hazard for the aquatic environment. Accidental incidents such as storage facility fires are of major concern as significant amounts of pesticide chemicals can enter the nearby riverine system, possibly...
A long-term monitoring programme of water and sediment quality is being undertaken before, during, and after the impoundment of Sutton Harbour, Plymouth (UK). The impoundment scheme protects an area of the city from periodic flooding, but harbour access is allowed via a lock. The water...
Details are given relating to the increasing use of numerical hydraulic and water quality models for environmental impact assessment studies and the increasing emphasis on more accurate numerical schemes for modelling the transport and dispersion of water quality constituents. Such a numerical...
Radiocaesium has been measured, using a Ge gamma-ray spectrometer, to a depth of 1 m in the intertidal sediment at four sites along the Ribble Estuary, Lancashire, UK. Using depth profiles of 137 Cs, 134 Cs, and the 137 Cs/ 134 Cs ratio together with the published release rates from Sellafield...
