Electrical Conductivity – Water Quality Measurements Electrical Conductivity, electrolytes, ions, and salinity Electrical conductivity measured in Siemens (S) and represents a fluid’s ability to conduct electricity or pass an electrical flow. Temperature and concentration of free ions in the fluid determine electrical conductivity. Measuring the… Read More »Electrical Conductivity – Water Quality Measurements
Dissolved Oxygen Sensors – Why Dissolved Oxygen Matters. What is dissolved oxygen and why is it important? Dissolved oxygen (DO), measured in mg/L, is the level of non-compound oxygen dissolved in water, it is measured using a dissolved oxygen sensor or dissolved oxygen probe. It… Read More »Dissolved Oxygen Sensors – Why Dissolved Oxygen Matters.
Water turbidity – why it is an important water quality measurement. What is Turbidity? Turbidity is an optical feature of a liquid and a measurement of its clarity. Determining scattered light levels within a column of water indicates turbidity. It is an important measurement to… Read More »Water turbidity – why it is an important water quality measurement.
Greenspan PS and PR water level sensors What are water level sensors? Hydrologists use water level sensors to determine the depth of a body of water. While a metre stick will measure depth, their accuracy is insufficient for most studies. Many hydrological studies require data… Read More »Greenspan PS and PR water level sensors
