Water quality surveillance techniques for early warning by interface sensors (AQUA-STEW)

Objective

To design, construct and test new real-time measurement techniques and methods for water quality. The approach is: to fingerprint natural water characteristics, to detect the presence of complex species, to measure accurately trace levels of priority pollutants. Pendant drop optical methods integrated with CCD colorimetric techniques will form the core technologies, having been demonstrated industrially for other applications. Alternative pendant drop techniques and other interface sensor technologies will be exploited depending on the priority water and environmental needs. The practicality of the engineered solutions will be proved using laboratory simulations and with the testing of in-field portable and on-line configurations.
