Innovation in automation project: water quality sensing and prediction

Project overview

Monitoring the water quality of rivers is increasingly conducted using automated in situ sensors, enabling timelier identification of unexpected values or trends. However, the data are confounded by anomalies caused by technical issues, for which the volume and velocity of data preclude manual detection. We present a framework for automated anomaly detection in high-frequency water-quality data from in situ sensors, using turbidity, conductivity and river level data collected from rivers flowing into the Great Barrier Reef.
