Naturally designed 'leaky dams' prevent flooding
A natural "leaky dams" flood management scheme, which was only installed in Tudeley Woods near Tunbridge Wells, Southern England in January this year, has functioned effectively during extreme weather conditions in Kent caused by Storms Ciara and Dennis which swept across the UK in February, according to the South East Rivers Trust (SERT). In partnership with local landowner The Hadlow Estate, the scheme has been introduced to protect properties in Five Oak Green, downstream of the Alder Stream catchment, from future flooding.

Laboratory, Monitoring, Process & Analytical
pH meter model PCE-228 now available with lots of additional probes
In laboratories as well as in the industrial sector, a pH meter is often required to measure the hydrogen-ion activity in water-based solutions. The hydrogen-ion activity is indicative of a solution's acidity or alkalinity, which is expressed as pH. The right pH electrode must be selected carefully in line with the measured medium as it will be directly in contact with it.

946 Portable VA Analyser – Heavy metal analysis goes mobile
Metrohm is pleased to introduce the 946 Portable VA Analyser, a compact, portable, all-in-one solution for heavy metal analysis of surface waters. Measurements with the 946 Portable VA are sensitive enough to detect trace level concentrations of total arsenic, mercury, and copper well below the limit values defined by law in many countries, among them the US and the member States of the EU.
Ocean-going lab ... the real test of a nutrient analyser
The UK's National Oceanography Centre (NOC) undertakes integrated ocean research and technology development from the coast to the deep ocean. As such, the NOC has a heavy requirement for seawater analysis. However, in addition to analytical work at the NOC's facilities in Southampton and Liverpool, the organisation's researchers also need to be able to analyse samples on board a variety of research vessels.
