Hydrodynamics and Nutrient Modeling

Posted on September 11th, 2013

Researchers at LACMRERS are linking the use of hydrodynamics (the study of fluids in motion) and nutrient modeling on the Upper Mississippi River System (UMRS). Biological communities in a large river system are mainly controlled by a complex interplay of biological, physical, and chemical processes that shape aquatic ecosystems. This growing area of research will […]

Mussels as Sensors

Posted on September 11th, 2013

As filter feeders, mussels serve as an early warning system for pollutants and sediments in Mississippi River, much like the “canary in the coal mine.” Native freshwater mussels perform essential ecological functions in aquatic systems. They can influence nutrient cycling, because they transfer nutrients from the water column to the riverbed. The mussels require constant […]

Water-Quality Monitoring Sensor Network

Posted on September 11th, 2013

IIHR’s water-quality initiative represents an unprecedented effort to monitor real-time changes in a large river in response to climatic events, agricultural trends, and other human activities. Researchers at LACMRERS have 10 Hydrolab multi-sonde water-quality monitors deployed in Pool 16 for detailed chemical analysis. The sensors provide continuous real-time monitoring of: Dissolved oxygen Temperature Specific conductance […]
