Professor Sam Kounaves, our after dinner speaker
The over arching theme of Sensing in Water was:
“Meaningful measurement from the micro to the macro scale”
Justin Dunning, Chairman of SWIG
Andy Blackhall, Keynote speaker on 27 September gave us a good overview of Welsh Water Dwr Cymru’s monitoring strategy.
Chris Thomas, Keynote speaker on 28 September gave us a fascinating overview of the Environment Agency monitoring programme.
