Principle

A visit to a water treatment plant reveals some fascinating procedures and purification methods. We will not merely be concerned with interesting impressions, but instead we will increase our understanding for microbiological processes by measuring the key parameters: temperature, pH and salinity.

Benefits

  • Experiment is part of an experiment set with numerous experiments in ecology
  • Universal handheld measurement device can also be used for other measurement parameters relevant in ecology, biology and chemistry
  • Outdoors measurement possible, for mobile use
  • Graphical display of measurement data
  • Data can be saved on SD memory card
  • All data can be transferred onto a computer for data analysis
  • Data analysis software can be freely distributed

Tasks

  1. Visit a wastewater treatment plant and take measurements relevant for studying microbiological processes
  2. Analyse the different process steps in a wastewater treatment plant by comparing the measurement values
