Eutrophication Analysis

Eutrophication is the process in which nutrients are added to a water body from a wide variety of polluting inputs including untreated or partially treated sewage, industrial wastewater and fertilizer from farming practices. Nutrient pollution, a form of water pollution, is a primary cause of eutrophication of surface waters, in which excess nutrients, usually nitrogen or phosphorus, stimulate algal and aquatic plant growth. LabSTAF and AutoSTAF are the next generation of STAF-based instrumentation to analyse the effects and processes of eutrophication, and their effect on phytoplankton. The system incorporates unparalleled sensitivity with a wide dynamic range, allowing for measurements in all environments: from reservoirs and lakes to open ocean. LabSTAF’s compact and robust unit is ideal for deployment on research vessels and in the lab, and AutoSTAF is suitable for deployment on moorings, large AUVs and similar platforms down to 600m.
