Water Sustainability through Nanotechnology:
Enabling Next-Generation Water Monitoring Systems
Wednesday 18 January 2017, 12:00 PM - 01:30 PM
The development of next-generation water monitoring systems is an essential element of ensuring a safe and abundant water supply. For example, water monitoring and analytics are used to assess quantity and availability of water for specific uses, to identify causes of contamination, and to evaluate potential remediation strategies. Yet, currently less than 30% of the Nation’s surface water bodies are assessed by EPA, states, or tribes, partly because of the high cost of traditional fixed-station water quality monitoring.
In this webinar, panelists will discuss the current state of and future opportunities related to water monitoring. Justin Mattingly (Water Environment & Reuse Foundation) will describe water monitoring needs related to reuse, and this broad overview will be followed by two specific use cases: Nick Dokoozlian (E&J Gallo Winery) will describe his work with distributed sensors for improved grape yield and water use efficiency, and Daniel Barta (NASA) will speak in technical detail about the water monitoring needs aboard spacecraft.
Webinar viewers will be able to submit questions for the panelists to answer during the Q&A period. Submitted questions will be considered in the order received and may be posted on the NNI website. A moderator will identify relevant questions and pose them to the speakers. Due to time constraints, some questions may be grouped and some may not be addressed during the webinar.
