Using sonar technology to test water quality
Today’s Video of the Day from the University of Missouri describes how researchers are using sonar technology to test the quality of water.
The method provides users with a fast and inexpensive way to determine whether drinking water is safe for consumption.
According to the scientists, they can identify changes in the physical properties of liquids based on the test results.
“If the water isn’t drinkable, then our method will tell you that something is wrong with the water,” said study co-author Professor Luis Polo-Parada.
“For instance, if a facility removes salt from sea water in order for water to be safe for drinking, our method can help alert the facility to potential changes such as an issue with the desalination process.”
