Parameters: Pyranine

Congratulations to Rajeev Sinha who was awarded a Travel Stipend for his presentation at the 2019 ASABE AIM Conference featuring our 10AU and Trilogy Fluorometers.


Off-target drift from airblast sprayers in vineyards and high-density tree-fruit orchards is a key concern among the growers and other stakeholders. A solid set canopy delivery system (SSCDS) is a novel spray application system that can potentially minimize spray drift and associated issues. This study evalu...

Parameters: CDOM, Turbidity

Congratulations to Stephen Plont who was awarded a Travel Stipend for his presentation at the 2019 Society for Freshwater Science featuring our Cyclops  and AquaFluor Fluorometers.


Stream confluences are ubiquitous features in freshwater networks and are known for distinct hydrogeomorphic characteristics relative to upstream tributaries and downstream reaches. However, the role of confluences as control points, locations that disproportionately influence ecosyst...

Parameters: Chlorophyll

Congratulations to Alexa Sterling who was awarded a Travel Stipend for her presentation at the 2019 ASLO Aquatic Sciences Meeting featuring our Trilogy and 10AU Fluorometers.


Some strains of the diatom Pseudo-nitzschia produce the neurotoxin domoic acid (DA) which can bioaccumulate in shellfish. Toxic shellfish consumption has deleterious impacts on higher trophic levels including mortality in marine animals and amnesic shellfish poisoning in humans. In 2016 and 201...

Parameters: Chlorophyll

Congratulations to Carolina Gutierrez who was awarded a Travel Stipend for her presentation at the 2018 Ecological Society of America Conference featuring our AquaFluor Handheld Fluorometer.


Background/Question/Methods Organismal traits determine how species perform and contribute to ecosystem functioning. Functional diversity quantifies the value and range of the traits that influence species performance and contribution to ecosystem functioning. Functional diversi...

Parameters: Ammonium

Congratulations to Keely MacNeil who was awarded a travel stipend for her presentation "N:P as driver of As retention" at the ASLO Summer Meeting 2018 featuring our AquaFluor Handheld Fluorometer.


Arsenic (As), a toxic trace element, can be taken into cells in place of phosphorus (P) and decouple phosphorylation, hindering energy production. Organisms take up more As when P is low, and our research shows that microbial As uptake depends on relative nitrogen (N:P), not...
