LOOKING INTO THE WATER

Collection of Water Data with High Temporal and Spatial Resolution

Water quality related monitoring and management

Extreme events, disasters and dynamic changes in water bodies due to urbanization, intensive agriculture, uptake of a wide range of contaminants and climatic changes: watercourses are subject to a variety of threats. To manage these challenges, high-resolution data, both on a spatial and temporal scale, will be indispensable in the future.

Based on the systematic collection of synoptic visual, hydromorphological, hydrochemical and hydrophysical characteristics of watercourses, RiverView® provides a holistic approach for water quality related monitoring and management. As a part of the joint project, an unmanned surface vehicle (USV) was developed for this purpose which is capable of navigating small and medium-sized rivers both autonomously and via remote control. Thanks to its built-in Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), the boat can repeatedly travel identical routes, thus allowing for comparative measurements over time. With the modular design of the measurement technology the boat can be equipped according to the requirements.
