A more accurate way to estimate climate change

A more accurate way to estimate climate change
It doesn’t matter if it’s a forest, a soybean field, or a prairie, all plants take up carbon dioxide during photosynthesis – the process where they use sunlight to convert water and carbon dioxide into food. During this changeover, the plants emit an energy 'glow' that is not visible to the human eye, but can be detected by satellites in space. Now, researchers at the University of New Hampshire have taken that one step further.

Making perfect sense for gas, water and heat metering

Making perfect sense for gas, water and heat metering
All across Europe, Asia and the United States, smart electricity metering is being rolled out, and other utilities are looking to get in on this action. Those involved in water, gas and heat are now also seeking to take advantage of the benefits. There’s a key difference, however, between the smart meters used for electricity and those required for other utilities. This is around choosing suitable communications technology.

Measurements by school pupils paved way for key research findings

Measurements by school pupils paved way for key research findings
With their measurements and samples, nearly 3,500 schoolchildren have assisted a research study on lakes and global warming. The results show that water temperatures generally remain low despite the air becoming warmer. This helps to curb the outflow of greenhouse gases (GHGs). How often is water warmer than air? Gesa Weyhenmeyer, Professor of Aquatic Biogeochemistry at Uppsala University, asked herself this question when she analysed thousands of measurements.

Field gas analyser measures up to six gases concurrently

Field gas analyser measures up to six gases concurrently
Biogas is a renewable energy source created during anaerobic digestion. This occurs when the organic materials naturally break down in the absence of oxygen. The gas is formed from the digestion of waste materials such as manure, sewage sludge and other biomass substrates such as crop and food production waste. Controlling waste disposal, methane production and usage is vital to ensure the continuity benefits for the environment.

Predictor forecasts energy use a decade in advance

Predictor forecasts energy use a decade in advance
  A researcher has developed a forecasting tool which can predict an individual’s or an entire city’s energy needs ten years in advance to enhance the way planners achieve environmental targets and help those in fuel-poverty understand their future needs.

Study tracks 'memory' of soil moisture

Study tracks 'memory' of soil moisture
The top 2 inches of topsoil on all of Earth’s landmasses contains an infinitesimal fraction of the planet’s water — less than one-thousandth of a percent. Yet because of its position at the interface between the land and the atmosphere, that tiny amount plays a crucial role in everything from agriculture to weather and climate, and even the spread of disease.

Open source planning tool for the energy turnaround

Open source planning tool for the energy turnaround
How much electricity flows through the grid? When and where? Where are the bottlenecks? What happens when wind turbines and solar cells feed in additional energy? The answer to these questions are essential for the global energy turnaround. However, for a valid planning, one first needs a solid understanding of the infrastructure.

Smart buoy for measuring water pollutants

Smart buoy for measuring water pollutants
All over the world, lakes, rivers, and coastal waters are threatened by high nutrient inputs. Nitrate or phosphates from waste-waters or fertilisers causes eutrophication. The consequence: Algae, in particular cyanobacteria (blue-green algae), grow uncontrollably and may release toxic substances.
