How IoT Environmental Monitoring Sensors Could Help Solve the Climate Crisis

Posted by UbiBot on May 9th, 2022

As the world\'s population expands, the numbers of industrial-based jobs increase too, resulting in massive increases in pollution. When you combine rising population growth and pollution with more severe droughts, floods, and storms, it\'s clear that finding a solution to climate change is critical.

So, how do we safeguard our one and the only home planet? One method is to collect environmental data with the help of IoT Environmental Sensors in order to better understand our physical world, and then use that data to influence policies, draw attention to local and national issues, and pursue solutions to the global crisis.

Using the Internet of Things to Advance Environmental Monitoring

As the Fourth Industrial Revolution begins, environmental monitoring using new technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT) can aim to safeguard our natural resources in unprecedented ways.

IoT can be the inner workings of a healthy society that has plenty of clean air, water, and fresh food without harming the environment. Why? Because internet-connected sensor solutions are capable of providing: real-time information, machine learning predictability, alerts via SMS/text, actuator operations, and data exchange.

Applications of IOT Environmental Sensors-

· Wind and topography have a significant impact on air pollutant concentration. For monitoring air quality, a mesh network of interconnected sensors and Wireless Tags that monitored temperature, humidity, nitrogen oxides, particulate matter, sulfur, and wind speed would be great. The data could be used to monitor the source of pollution or areas that are heavily impacted by pollution.

· Water conditions would be available for monitoring in real-time if a city installed a network of water quality monitors in its waterways, CSO outflow locations, and intertidal zones. The sensor data would also provide insight into how the water systems are responding to current weather conditions, allowing for better management procedures.

· Farmers would be able to detect whether portions of their land are dry, the pH, crop levels, and which regions are oversaturated with water if wireless sensors were installed on farms. The farmer would then be able to decide when and how to irrigate their crops. This IoT solution not only saves money by lowering water consumption but also helps to reduce soil erosion and eutrophication downstream.

IoT-enabled environmental monitoring allows for a consistent and ongoing assessment of the environment\'s present state, trends, and predictability. As the world recognizes the value of data, environmental monitoring may have a beneficial impact on regional, continental, and global conversations about how to scale environmental protection programs.
