Deployment of Water Quality Monitoring Buoy

IMA > Deployment of Water Quality Monitoring Buoy
Event: Deployment of Water Quality Monitoring Buoy

The Institute of Marine Affairs (IMA), in conjunction with Microsoft Caribbean, Fujitsu, GlobeRangers and Digicel, deployed a Water Quality Monitoring Buoy in the Gulf of Paria(GoP) off Claxton Bay. The purpose of this PoC is to gather real time data from underwater sensors positioned on a buoy in GoP. This data will be processed and analyzed to provide critical insight into levels of pollution, and will assist with early detection of environmental incidents such as chemical spills, fish kills and harmful algal blooms, and allow for a quicker response. This PoC is expected to last for six months and IMA staff would be monitoring the measurements throughout the period.Once completed and the concept is successful, the IMA int ends to maintain the buoy in the Gulf of Paria, and possibly duplicate the concept once funds are available. The data will be made available to the public.
