Automated Ground Water Seepage & Toxicity Meter

Automated Ground Water Seepage & Toxicity Meter Inventor: Matthew Charette Publication No. US7637168 B2   Overview: Submarine Groundwater Discharge (SGD) can carry nutrients and pollutants into salt marshes, coastal waters, bays, coral reefs and other vulnerable areas potentially leading to environmental problems including eutrophication and the deterioration of the natural ecology. The study of the flow,…

AutoBOD-2: In-Line, Real-Time Biological Oxygen Demand Sensor

AutoBOD-2 technology brings reagent-free, real-time BOD measurement and process control capability to the wastewater treatment arena, providing data for control of aeration for optimal digestion.

AutoBOD-1 Real-Time Wastewater Biological Oxygen Demand Sensor

AutoBOD-1, a carousel benchtop commercial prototype designed to replace the current EPA mandated 5-day BOD test, has been developed and is currently in proof of concept studies to validate the underlying technology and garner EPA and customer acceptance.

All-Water Acoustic Release

All-Water Acoustic Release Inventor: Timothy Kane Overview: Recovering positively buoyant instruments anchored to the bottom of the ocean requires an acoustic signal to trigger the burn wire and release the anchor. Traditionally, burn wire acoustic release systems rely on conductive seawater and need about 15 minutes to burn through and release the instrument. These constraints…
