South African activity opens way to ocean pollution project for Obscape
Monitoring technology company Obscape, a recent NWP member, has expanded its presence in South Africa with the help of NWP connections. This has opened the way for their involvement in a global project to reduce ocean pollution from plastics and other litter coming from rivers.
How can monitoring Conductivity and Temperature help water quality control?
Dissolved substances, chemicals, and minerals can be found in most water bodies. Higher amounts of impurities can lead to a higher conductivity. Use of a CT Station to monitor dissolved salts from impurities, can confirm the heightened conductivity of water. Reports or Threshold alerts confirming changes in the conductivity of water may also indicate that a pollutant has entered the water.
