International scientists use Cork Harbour to devise water quality measure

Press/Media: Press / Media

Description

Cork Harbour has been used by an international team of scientists to devise a new water quality index that measures pollution levels in a simplified fashion.

University of Galway researchers, in collaboration with Charles Sturt University in Australia, used artificial intelligence and data mining in Cork Harbour in order to come up with the new tool, which can now be adapted by other countries.

Using complex mathematical algorithms, the team developed a simple water quality tool that can be used to assess the level of pollution. The proposed model is so simple that it does not require extensive knowledge of chemistry, biology, or statistics, as opposed to other models, according to the University of Galway.
