Despliegue de la boya oceanográfica de SMARTLAGOON en el Mar Menor

El pasado viernes 14 de octubre de 2022 fue un hito relevante para nuestro proyecto y queríamos compartir con vosotros nuestra experiencia y primeras impresiones después de más de un mes de funcionamiento. La electrónica  de la boya de SMARTLAGOON fue diseñada, testeada y desarrollada por nuestros socios del Departamento de Ecología, Genética y Limnología de Uppsala University en el Lago Erken (Suecia). En este lago se desarrollan actividades de monitorización de alta frecuencia desde los años 80-90, lideradas por el Dr. Don Pierson. De hecho, desde 1940 el lago Erken ha servido como estación de campo para desarrollar actividades de investigación y docencia para...

SMARTLAGOON represented at scientific meetings: DSOS and SIL

In July and August 2022, Jorrit Mesman represented SMARTLAGOON at two scientific events; the virtual DSOS (Data Science Open Science) Summit and the SIL (International Society of Limnology) conference in Berlin, Germany. Our project is composed of scientific knowledge and expertise that has been built-up over the past decades, but SMARTLAGOON also generates new knowledge that may benefit the larger scientific community, and therefore it is good to occasionally share this knowledge at scientific meetings. Moreover, by listening to and interacting with other scientists, new insights may be gained that can further help to achieve SMARTLAGOON’s goals. DSOS is a virtual event that intends to...

Intelligent environmental infrastructure

To collect real-time data about the lagoon, we are deploying an intelligent environmental infrastructure made of sensors and cam-eras. An intelligent environmental infrastructure can be defined as the use of smart sensors and IoT to connect and transmit data about the environment in real-time, exploiting intelligent algorithms and protocols. We will use a smart buoy to collect data related to the lagoon water conditions and a platform for accurate volumetric flow measurements inrivers and canals. In this last case, the AI algorithm runs on a cloud base infrastructure, allowing to send data stream both fromcameras installed in fixed locations and, exploiting citizen science, from smartphones...
