Paradigm Shifts in Water Quality Sensor Design


Sponsored by: In-Situ Inc.

Data from continuous water quality monitoring networks inform critical activities across every sector of the surface water industry today, from meeting federal and state water quality standards and ensuring safe recreational waters, to researching and managing the effects of climate change. As such, continuous water quality monitoring networks must produce results that meet the data quality objectives for a given program while operating within the constraints of limited human resources and budgets.

Until now, however, deploying and cost-effectively maintaining an autonomous monitoring network has been limited by lack of advancements in sensor technology. Join David A. Bossie for a free online training webinar exploring how innovations in water quality sensor design are challenging old beliefs about the ability of autonomous, long-term monitoring networks to produce representative, comparable data at a price point within reach of most organizations.

Specifically, we’ll learn how you can operate pH sensors hands-free for months that previously required calibration every 1-2 weeks.  We’ll see how turbidity sensor accuracy is no longer worrisome due to improved linearity across the range of 0-4000 NTU, and how the use of LEDs and filters provide stability not found with incandescent light sources.  Finally, we’ll explore how you can deploy conductivity sensors in biofouling environments without loss of accuracy thanks to an innovative, open-faced design that allows wiping.

Learning Objectives
Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives:

  • Learn how limitations of existing technologies in continuous water quality-monitoring networks affect data quality and network maintenance costs.
  • Explore how the evolution of the pH sensor design results in improved stability, data quality and reduced calibration frequency.
  • Discover how improved turbidity sensor design increases linearity and accuracy in clear and high sediment environments.
  • Examine how improved conductivity sensor design coupled with anti-fouling systems improves performance in high biofouling environments.
