The efficacy of chlorine-based disinfectants against planktonic and biofilm bacteria for decentralised point-of-use drinking water (2021)
Journal Article
Clayton, G. E., Thorn, R., & Reynolds, D. (2021). The efficacy of chlorine-based disinfectants against planktonic and biofilm bacteria for decentralised point-of-use drinking water. npj Clean Water, 4(1), https://doi.org/10.1038/s41545-021-00139-w

Chlorine solutions are used extensively for the production of biologically safe drinking water. The capability of point-of-use [POU] drinking water treatment systems has gained interest in locations where centralised treatment systems and distributio...

Sediment and surface water microplastic contamination along the Ganges River, from the Himalayan foothills to the tidal reach downstream of Kolkata, India (2021)
Presentation / Conference
Nel, H., Fox, B., Reynolds, D., Thorn, R., Clayton, G., Perrin, E., …Magnone, D. (2021, April). Sediment and surface water microplastic contamination along the Ganges River, from the Himalayan foothills to the tidal reach downstream of Kolkata, India. Presented at EGU General Assembly 2021

Twenty rivers have been estimated previously to account for almost 70% of global plastic emissions to the marine environment. Of these, the Ganges River was second only to the Yangtze River. Yet, scale and complexity of the Ganges River network make...

Taking the pulse of Mother Ganga - Revealing the visible and invisible water pollution crisis along the Ganges River (2021)
Presentation / Conference
Krause, S., Fox, B., Reynolds, D., Thorn, R., Clayton, G., Perrin, E., …Magnone, D. (2021, April). Taking the pulse of Mother Ganga - Revealing the visible and invisible water pollution crisis along the Ganges River. Presented at EGU General Assembly 2021

It is probably hard to overestimate the significance of the River Ganges for its spiritual, cultural and religious importance. As the worlds’ most populated river basin and a major water resource for the 400 million people inhabiting its catchment, t...

Using in-situ sensors to quantify spatial variability in nutrient concentrations across the Ganges river basin (2021)
Presentation / Conference
Khamis, K., Fox, B., Reynolds, D., Thorn, R., Clayton, G., Perrin, E., …Magnone, D. (2021, April). Using in-situ sensors to quantify spatial variability in nutrient concentrations across the Ganges river basin. Presented at EGU General Assembly 2021

There is increasing interest in monitoring spatial variability in biogeochemical processes using field deployable sensors. Despite this, rigorous assessments of accuracy and optimal sensor configurations remain limited for such applications. We under...

Water quality across the River Ganga basin in India: Trends, dominant geochemical processes and impacts (2021)
Presentation / Conference
Richards, L. A., Fox, B., Reynolds, D., Thorn, R., Clayton, G., Perrin, E., …Magnone, D. (2021, April). Water quality across the River Ganga basin in India: Trends, dominant geochemical processes and impacts. Presented at EGU General Assembly 2021

In a basin-wide survey of the River Ganga and key tributaries, from the Himalayan source to the Bay of Bengal in India, we aim to improve the conceptual understanding of downstream water quality trends along > 2000 km. Here we explore the spatial di... Read More about Water quality across the River Ganga basin in India: Trends, dominant geochemical processes and impacts.
