Collaborative catchment-scale water quality management using integrated wireless sensor networks

Zia, Huma, Harris, Nick and Merrett, Geoff V. (2013) Collaborative catchment-scale water quality management using integrated wireless sensor networks At European Geosciences Union General Assembly 2013, Austria. 07 - 12 Apr 2013.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Poster)


The challenge of improving water quality (WQ) is a growing global concern. Poor WQ is mainly attributed to poor water management and outdated agricultural activities. We propose that collaborative sensor networks spread across an entire catchment can allow cooperation among individual activities for integrated WQ monitoring and management. We show that sharing information on critical parameters among networks of water bodies and farms can enable identification and quantification of the contaminant sources, enabling better decision making for agricultural practices and thereby reducing contaminants fluxes.
