Latest developments in water sensors

March 7 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm


Physical and chemical sensors are at the heart of virtually all measurement systems. Amongst the most popular for water monitoring applications are temperature, conductivity, turbidity, colour and pH. During the past decades, they have become smaller, more rugged and stable, leading to better reliable systems. Also during this time, significant advances have been made in the measurement of species such as trace metals, nitrate, nitrite, ammonia, and E. coli, using electrochemical and optical techniques. This workshop highlighted developments and improvements to sensors and sensing technologies, with emphasis on, but not exclusively, these latter, chemical, materials. It discussed how information supplied from reliable sensors is vital for the development of big data analytics and creates the options for novel applications and alternative measurements. The overall goal was to provide information to allow water companies to make better measurements in the future.

A joint event with the Electroanalytical Sensing Systems Group (EASSG) of the Royal Society of Chemistry.

Chaired by: Andrew Chappell, Environment Agency

Sponsored by: CamLab and held at Clare College, Cambridge
