Monitoring And Control Of Pollution Processes In Reservoirs
Free (open access)
In recent years the study of water quality in lakes and reservoirs has been subject to several research programs for both ecosystem evolution and water management. Analysis of hydraulic-environmental characteristics in terms of temporal trend has shown the hydraulics and physical-chemical structure of water but in terms of spatial distribution it is necessary to characterize the difference between point and non-point processes. A mobile monitoring system able to measure several vertical profiles along the reservoir surface and a geostatistical model are employed in order to evaluate the spatial (3-D) distribution of environmental indicators (temperature, dissolved oxygen, electrical conductivity, pH and redox potential).
