SMART and Affordable systems for Environmental Quality Monitoring

August 20, 2018


Globally, one of the functions of regulatory authorities on environmental management is to formulate plans for prevention, control and abatement of environmental pollution. To ensure environmental management system implementation, it is imperative to have comprehensive database that indicates environmental quality status. And collection of such database requires a good monitoring network comprising well established infrastructure, comprehensive protocol of monitoring and skilled manpower to oversee and ensure the reliability of data. Such monitoring network is cost prohibitive, time extensive and has limitations in terms of functions of the organization. Thus, it is the need of the hour to streamline the process by the use of latest reliable technologies available like sensor based and portable instruments.
