Arctic Metrology

The polar environment is under a constantly increasing interest: climate change comes first and comes faster in the arctic. Multitudes of observations are needed to understand the environment and its evolution. The traceability of data becomes fundamental for the comparability of the many and different measurements’ results.

Site Evaluation

We are routinely asked the following question: “Do you do soil testing and site evaluation?” Often this is the sole question posed in an e-mail or during an initial telephone enquiry in relation to a potentially contaminated site.

Monitoring Standards

In the UK, as in all Member EU states, European (EN) Standards are used as the basis for most emissions monitoring requirements.

Contamination and Containment

Automatic Weather Stations [Mar 2012]

Automatic Weather Stations (AWS) are becoming increasingly popular in many applications owing to their becoming more affordable, reliable, having improved data logging capabilities and through the growth in personal computing bringing sophisticated data manipulation and archiving within the reach of all.

Atmospheric Humidity

Water vapour is part of the hydrological cycle, and is a key agent in both weather and climate. Humidity affects many properties of air and of materials in contact with air. It’s no wonder, then, that we want to measure and understand it.

Methods of Soil Analysis - A summary of some of the many methods of soil analysis

Soils are an extremely complex matrix to analyse, particularly on contaminated sites - the actual soil matrix can vary from a sand (silica) to limestone (calcium carbonate) to clay (complexed minerals), or a mixture of many. In addition to this, the range of contaminants varies from fairly innocuous construction materials to toxic gasworks waste to highly toxic pharmaceutical waste/ mercury/explosives, etc.

Temperature: Some Fundamental Notions

This article is not concerned with global warming but with temperature per se and the statement quoted is by way of introduction to the topic of temperature as a thermodynamic quantity.

Calibrate with Confidence

Gas detectors are life saving devices. They are precision instruments that are built solely to measure and monitor potentially lethal gases in the workplace. The only way to ensure that a gas monitor will accurately respond to the hazardous gas or gases it is designed to detect is to calibrate the sensors against a known gas standard.

Continuous Noise Monitoring

The increasing awareness of the public of environmental issues such as CO2 emissions, carbon footprints and waste recycling has brought the issue of environmental noise to the fore. Many of the demands of modern society result in the creation of noise sources such as larger airports, additional power stations and higher road traffic levels.

How Certain is Your Data?

The awareness of uncertainty associated with laboratory data from contaminated sites has increased significantly in recent years, in the UK partly due to the implementation of the MCERTS standard by the Environment Agency for laboratories involved with testing soil samples, and partly due to general improvements of standards/legislation/controls within the industry itself, e.g. implementation of SiLC (Specialist in Land Contamination) qualifications. Awareness across Europe as a whole is much higher than in the early 1990s, when most countries were implementing Environmental Protection policies of one kind or another.
