High-frequency sensing of water, sediment, nutrients, and algae in a rapidly urbanizing environment
Urbanization drastically alters water quality across space and time.
We use in situ aquatic sensors to understand the transport of contaminants at novel timescales down to minutes and seconds. Our suite of sensor arrays includes measurement of turbidity, chlorophyll, nitrate, dissolved organic carbon, and other analytes. Our research findings highlight the impact of urbanization on increasing the connectivity of contaminants to stream corridors.
