  • A SMART SENSOR NETWORK FOR SEA WATER QUALITY MONITORING

    ABSTRACT

    Measurement of chlorophyll concentration is gaining more-and-more importance in

    evaluating the status of the marine ecosystem. For wide areas monitoring a reliable architecture

    of wireless sensors network is required. In this paper, we present a network of smart sensors,

    based on ISO/IEC/IEEE 21451 suite of standards, for in situ and in continuous space time

    monitoring of surface water bodies, in particular for seawater. The system is meant to be an

    important tool for evaluating water quality and a valid support to strategic decisions concerning

    critical environment issues. The aim of the proposed system is to capture possible extreme events

    and collect long-term periods of data.
