WaterScope S2N Smart Buoy on the Danube

WaterScope S2N Smart Buoy on the Danube



Within the confines of a jointly created project with BOKU Austria (Universität für Bodenkultur Wien), WaterScope has placed two S2N Smart Buoys in the Lobau quarter of Vienna, in 2 different parts of the backwater of the river Danube.

The buoys will continuously measure water temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, redox potential and conductivity data, which then will be transmitted to a central server, where BOKU’s experts will be able to reach and analyze. Network access is provided by WaterScope gateway, installed on the steeple of a nearby village church.

The project will last for 2 years and closes with a joint publication about the microbial dynamics of river bank filtration.
