Monitoring the Aquatic Environment Using Sensor Technologies

Wednesday 19th October 2011

The Royal Society of Chemistry, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London W1J 0BQ

The conference, the third on the same theme, proved very successful with sixty two persons and one exhibitor attending . The programme consisted of presentations by four invited speakers, twelve presentations and seven posters by young researches.The presentations by young researches were selected from the response to a call for papers and those selected received complimentary registrations. The first session considered the issues relating to sampling, calibration and data validation illustrated by on-line water monitoring, monitoring metals and nutrients in the aquatic environment, continuous water monitoring and monitoring water biofouling. The second session featured presentations on monitoring applications, for example, voltammetric techniques for metals in sea water, polymer based potentiometric sensors and monitoring the aquatic carbon cycle. Additional presentations included acoustic backscatter response for dispersed oil concentrations, electrochemical sensors and optical trapping for micro-organisms in water. 

Presentations are available to view/download below.
