Water quality, levels, temperature, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, PH and nitrates are being measured by Internet of Things (IoT) sensor nodes placed in:
- Milltown River
- Dingle Harbour
- Ventry Harbour
- Tralee Bay (inner & outer)
- Owenmore River
- Castlemaine Harbour
Monitoring the water around our peninsula in this way will allow for data collection and storage that might help us predict environmental changes and events. It will also provide information on the impact that natural events and human interventions have on the environment. This information will be helpful for enterprise, the general community, farmers, aquaculture businesses, local authority and state businesses.
Marine Biology Researchers from Sacred Heart University (SHU) and IoT Network Developers from Net Feasa have collaborated to implement this project. The project has been funded by the FLAG programme (European Maritime and Fisheries Fund Operational Programme 2014 – 2020, co-funded by the European Union and Irish Government).
