Podcast: Live from #IFAT2022 – Setting up a water monitoring network

One year after the cataclysmal floods in Western Germany and its bordering states, politicians and scientists of various disciplines are discussing measures to mitigate the impact and harm of heavy rain and flood events.

It’s little wonder these events were subject to many conversations and presentations at IFAT 2022, the World’s leading trade fair for environmental technologies with a strong focus on the water infrastructure. A must-show for hydrologists like Katja Weber. In this episode, recorded live at the OTT HydroMet booth, the experienced Hydrology Application Development Manager explains how to set up a hydrological monitoring network from the right choice of location and sensor to sophisticated software.

Tune in and learn about:

  • How the floods in Western Germany could happen
  • Downsides of radar forecast and the need for local measurements
  • The new Aquarius water monitoring software with sophisticated alert and archive functions

When every minute counts, how do you get the right data to make critical decisions? Meet AQUARIUS, a water data management platform ideal for numerous hydrology applications.
