Fuzzy Synthetic Evaluation of Water Quality of Hei River System

Abstract Identification of water quality conditions in a river system based on limited observations is an essential task for meeting the goals of environmental management. Various classification methods have been used for water quality estimation. However, a discrepancy frequently arises from the lack of a clear distinction between each water utilization mode, the uncertainty in [...]

Biosensors for marine applications: We all need the sea, but does the sea need biosensors?

Abstract The aim of the paper is to explain the rationale behind marine biosensor applications, give an overview of measurement strategies currently employed, summarise some of the relevant available biosensor technology as well as instrumentation requirements for marine sensors and attempt a forward look at what the future might hold in terms of needs and [...]

Unearthing human pathogens at the agricultural–environment interface: A review of current methods for the detection of Escherichia coli O157 in freshwater ecosystems

Abstract Contamination of water with the zoonotic pathogen Escherichia coli O157 can have severe public health implications and has led to many large disease outbreaks. Although the gastrointestinal tract of ruminants is the recognised reservoir of this organism, E. coli O157 can persist for significant periods of time in animal manure and contaminated soil, from [...]

Biosensors for Environmental Monitoring at Global Scale and the EU Level

Abstract Biosensor technology is based on a specific biological recognition element in combination with a transducer for signal processing. Since their inception, biosensors have been expected to play a significant analytical role in environmental monitoring…biomonitoring is an essential tool for rapid and cost-effective environmental monitoring. For this reason, biosensor technology has been considered as a [...]
