The Role Of Water Filtration In Chemistry And Ecological Parameter Research

Water Analysis

In marine chemistry research, scientists conduct water quality tests of oceans, lakes, rivers, and coastal water ways to track changes over time and understand the effects of human activity. These studies often involve filtration to separate fractions of a water sample that are indicative of the ecological state of a body of water.

Given the complexity of surface water composition both at the micro and the nanoscale, selecting the most relevant environmental parameters to study is key to retrieving the most useful information from collected samples.
