Understanding Suspended Solids in water

Optical techniques for the real-time measurement of suspended solids in air and water have many parallels. In recent years, significant advances have been made in understanding entrained solids using cost-effective, indicative measurement techniques.  Low-cost multi-wavelength nephelometers (4-5 light sources) or more cost-effective black carbon measurement systems have parallel opportunities in water.

Our interest is to broaden the use of real-time, indicative techniques relating to solids in water to better understand and quantify suspended solids, for example relating to the control of colour or specific solid sources or contaminants (like micro-plastics).
