Title: The development of new techniques for the monitoring of ammonia in water
Author: R.W. Bogue

This report concerns Phase One of a project which is intended ultimately to yield an improved ammonia sensor for use by the NRA. This study was commissioned by the NRA in recognition of the widely held view that the performance of available ammonia sensors, such as ISEs, falls short of that required for reliable use in the hand held water quality monitor presently being evaluated by the NRA. The specific limitations of available ammonia sensing devices, in the context of both freshwater and marine environments, are highlighted in this report and were established through discussions with regional NRA personnel and the Plymouth Marine Laboratory.
