What are the sensors needed to detect nuclear wastewater?

Hello Friends,

After Japan announced the discharge of nuclear wastewater, each country will certainly strengthen the importance of the issue of water quality testing, then there will be a broad market for sensors to measure water quality. But I wonder which sensors will be more important?

Many thanks!

I have just read this article a few minutes ago: https://www.h2o-watermatters.com/includes/partials/printArticle.php?ed=202112&art=09_Artikel

But it is only about nitrates. There is also a project in Brittany in France about nitrates. One use some special paper stripes and then compare the colour.

The problem is you would need a sensor for everything which can be in the water.
Some common measurement are however made for O2 in solution, redox, pH, conductivity.

For the radioactivity, I assume you can’t use the multigeiger because water should absorb the gamma rays.

Thank you for your sincere reply, which is very useful to me.
