Abstract

© 2014 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd. This paper reports on a trial of 21 low-cost, robust and reliable chloride sensors, networked and tested in a fluvarium (stream simulator). Initial test results reported here have shown that the sensors are able to monitor real time changes in chloride flux, and track its progress through the fluvarium. We report on results from both surface flow as well as from sensors at a depth of a few mm in the fluvarium sediment, and differences and trends between the two are discussed. It is shown that for the flow regime and sediment type tested, penetration of surface chloride into the river bed is unexpectedly slow and raises questions regarding the dynamics of pollutants in such systems. We conclude that the sensors offer a new paradigm in hydrologic monitoring and will enable new science to be investigated.
