Instrumentation, Control and Automation of Water and Wastewater Treatment and Transport Systems

Edited by

  • R. Briggs, City University, London, UK

These proceedings include close to 100 papers on a large variety of topics in instrumentation, automation and control. Important topics include better communications, mathematical modelling, use of expert systems, new sensor technology (electrochemical, fibre optical, electro-optical), new materials (for immobilisation of reactive species and for addition of reagents and standards) and improved management due to availability of current data. One of the most important functions of the workshops is communication, on an international scale, amongst those engaged in research, those engaged in practice and those responsible for regulatory aspects. Accordingly, the proceedings cover recent advances, case histories and practical aspects.
