Departmental Research Projects
Mr Wm. Alexander Osborne
The aim of the project is to develop techniques to sense river channel processes using acoustic methods. Standard techniques for river monitoring require in-channel equipment and field calibration, and consequently are difficult to implement at a catchment-wide scale. This project will develop an Internet-of-Things approach to catchment-scale river channel monitoring, which will be based on the collection and analysis of acoustic data. One application of the project results could be an early-warning system for flood events.
