  27. 27. Applications EXOwater.com Read more on our blog. Monitoring Sinkhole Evolution In February of 2014 a sinkhole opened and swallowed eight rare Corvettes at the National Corvette Museum. Since then, a diverse team of professionals have been working to better understand the collapse, and how to prevent it in the future. An EXO2 sonde has been deployed to monitor the water in an adjacent pond providing information about the natural formation of the sinkhole. “Partnerships like this…are the essence of collaborative scientific research, and allow us…to collect data and quickly put together information to inform how to move forward…” Dr. Jason Polk (Director, WKU CWRS)
  28. 28. Applications EXOwater.com Read more on our blog. Monitoring Nuclear Waste In Cumbria, England – experts are attempting to safely decommission highly radioactive nuclear storage ponds. Despite the harsh conditions, the open ponds appear to intermittently bloom with a range of microorganisms that cloud the water. An EXO2 deployed with a ROV has greatly reduced the amount of time individuals have to spend at the ponds collecting samples. “It has been a common experience…to have to apply significant adaptations to electrical equipment, so that it is able to function correctly in a radioactive environment…However, the EXO sondes have performed very well ‘off the shelf’ which is a sign of good design.” Xavier Poteau, Sellafield Ltd.
  29. 29. Applications EXOwater.com Read more on our blog. Monitoring Key Water Quality Interactions Critical water sources up and down the Atlantic seaboard are now monitored and protected by some of the first EXO sondes in production. “EXO sondes are powerful tools that provide us with the ability to provide real-time data to better serve our mission of monitoring water quality in New York Harbor.” Beau Ranheim, Section Chief, NYC DEP “We are using 10 EXO2 sondes in a network that evaluates the effect of land-use on ecosystem function across the state of New Hampshire. The EXO instruments are deployed in…urban, agriculutural and forested areas. The sensors…aid researchers and policy makers in assessing the impact of human activities on water quality.” Adam Baumann, Research Scientist, University of New Hampshire
