Sensor network for oceanography in shallow water - Kongsfjord experiment (SNOW)

The project SNOW will develop a European component of a global in site observing system of ocean variability in the North Atlantic. A pilot array network sensors will be deployed, to transmit in real time data from the Arctic. This array will support several objectives to be developed in the next future: operational real-time ocean forecasts; ocean

Thank you for adding your research project to the growing pool of knowledge about the research going on in Svalbard and its surrounding waters!

As we would like you to know a bit about what is going on in Svalbard in your discipline and fieldwork surroundings, we have selected some projects that should be interesting for you to have a look at. There are {{related}} projects registered in RiS that match with your keywords, and below you will find links to the 3 that have the most relevant match.

As we all work to reduce our environmental footprint, we want to give you an easy way to find projects that have fieldwork close to you, so you can contact the project owner and coordinate your logistics whenever possible. This could also help you save some expensive costs ;) There are {{close}} projects registered in RiS that have registered their fieldwork sites within 10 km from you, and below you will find links to the 3 closest fieldwork locations.

Summary

The project SNOW will develop a European component of a global in site observing system of ocean variability in the North Atlantic. A pilot array network sensors will be deployed, to transmit in real time data from the Arctic. This array will support several objectives to be developed in the next future: operational real-time ocean forecasts; ocean model initialization and assessment; understanding and monitoring ocean variability. A Data Centre in Ny-Ålesund will collect, quality control and transmit the data on the Global Telecommunication System, for use by EC National Weather Services and operational agencies. CNR is already involved in the SIOS network and this proposal aims to provide the CNR contribution to the marine (sea based) part of the System. Objective The major aim of this project is to collect timeseries of oceanographic data in the Arctic (Kongsfiord, Svalbard) using a real time transmission system that is at the frontier of acoustic underwater communication systems and is developed under the SNOW project. The network at this first experimental stage will provide a small scale acoustic coverage of a cellular-like system. However it’s the starting point for a wide coverage to be developed in the future. In detail the project’s aims are: 1) to set up an oceanographic mooring equipped with standard instruments and develop new mooring technologies specific for harsh environments. Collected data will be stored into Ny-Ålesund databases. The mooring will be prepared to host experiments from other projects. 2) to plan and build a real time data transmission system for oceanographic parameters using underwater acoustic low cost modems. 3) to set up a network of these modems. The system will be open to include instruments from the scientific community other than CNR equipments. 4) to set up protocols and connections to the local Data Centre run by CNR and/or Ny-Ålesund facilities. 5) to provide real time oceanographic data to the web is the ultimate objective of the SNOW project.
