Thomas Watteyne (Eva) : Wireless In the Woods: Monitoring the Snow Melt Process in the Sierra Nevada
Historically, the study of mountain hydrology and the water cycle has been largely observational, with meteorological forcing and hydrological variables extrapolated from a few infrequent manual measurements. Recent developments in IoT technology are revolutionizing the field of mountain hydrology. Low-power wireless networks can now generate denser data in real-time and for a fraction of the cost of labor-intensive manual measurement campaigns.
Thomas Watteyne is a member of the Eva team at Inria Paris. In 2016, as part of the "Save the peaches" project, he equipped Argentinian orchards with sensors in order to predict the arrival of frost and save the crops. The team is now planning to use the same technology in order to predict snow melt in the Sierra Nevada.
