Environmental Engineer - Profiles of Scientists and Engineers

submitted by: nsf

What’s it really like to be an engineer or a scientist? What does an environmental engineer do all day? You’re about to find out! Meet the next generation of engineers and scientists in these profiles of young professionals, who may just inspire you to join them. Tamar Losleben shows us how environmental engineers research and plan the best ways to satisfy both human and environmental needs. Find out what it’s like to be an environmental engineer.

Online SPE-LC-APCI-MS/MS for the Determination of Steroidal Hormones in Water

submitted by: Chrom Solutions

Paul Fayad presents his scientific poster about the online SPE-LC-APCI-MS/MS for the determination of steroidal hormones in water using the Thermo Scientific mass spectrometer for a fast and sensitive method allowing the simultaneous determination of 8 selected steroid hormones in water matrices.

High Resolution Screening and Quantitative Analysis of Antibiotics in Drinking Water

submitted by: Chrom Solutions

Jonathan Beck discusses online sample pre-concentration and extraction of water samples followed by analysis with high-resolution, accurate mass (HR/AM) detection, quantitation and confirmation. Screening, confirmation and quantitation of antibiotics in drinking water was done in the same analytical run with the Thermo Scientific Orbitrap platform.

Science Nation - Large Lake Observatory

submitted by: nsf
The Large Lakes Observatory (LLO) helps an interdisciplinary group of scientists use oceanographic research approaches to investigate the mysteries of large lakes, and that includes everything from large-scale reactions to climate change to new microbes and other forms of life. With support from the National Science Foundation, LLO scientists work to better understand the biology, chemistry, physics, and geology of these bodies of water. In the summer of 2011, LLO scientists completed a 17-...

Science Nation - Waste to Energy

submitted by: nsf
All of us use water and in the process, a lot of it goes to waste. Whether it goes down drains, sewers or toilets, much of it ends up at a wastewater treatment plant where it undergoes rigorous cleaning before it flows back to the environment. The process takes time, money and a lot of energy. What if that wastewater could be turned into energy? It almost sounds too good to be true, but environmental engineer Bruce Logan is working on ways to make it happen. Most treatment plants already use...

Science Nation - Lab in a Can

submitted by: nsf
Monitoring water quality is vital to make sure dangerous bacteria doesn't creep into our drinking water or overcome sewage treatment plants. With support from the National Science Foundation, engineers at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute have developed the Environment Sample Processor (ESP), a "DNA lab in a can." The size of a trash can, it can be placed in the open ocean or at water treatment facilities to identify potentially harmful bacteria, algae, larvae and other...
