Protecting and conserving the beluga whale habitat in Alaska with Libelium’s flexible sensor platform

Protecting and conserving the beluga whale habitat in Alaska with Libelium’s flexible sensor platform

July 12th, 2018 - Libelium

Beluga whales are considered critically endangered with a population estimated around 150,000 worldwide. In 2017, a natural gas leak was detected approximately 6 kilometers offshore in the Cook Inlet near Nikiski (Alaska). Alaskan authorities responded with detailed and challenging monitoring requirements due to the area being a critical habitat for endangered beluga whales.

Libelium’s partner company Aridea Solutions designed a solution to monitor the leak based in a buoy equipped with Libelium’s wireless sensor platform to monitor air and water near the leak affecting the Beluga whales and other aquatic mammals. This project consisted of monitoring methane, oxygen and CO2 levels above the surface of the water. While simultaneously monitoring dissolved methane, dissolved O2 and several other parameters directly beneath the surface of the water. Read more.

Early flood detection and warning system in Argentina developed with Libelium sensors technology

Early flood detection and warning system in Argentina developed with Libelium sensors technology

June 27th, 2018 - Libelium

Libelium and the Argentinian company Rack2 have developed a permanent flood monitoring system based on IoT technology in La Emilia, a small village in the North of Buenos Aires. Its location next to a river has been subject to several flood alerts throughout its history. With the last flood in 2017, a 75% of the population were forced to evacuate, one person died and more than 3,000 people were moved to several evacuation centers.

The final objective of the authorities was to have a permanent water monitoring system, not only for risk alerts but also to produce a satisfactory water flow, to control and record its behavior. Rack2, Libelium’s distributor in Argentina, has implemented an early flood detection and warning system using Libelium technology, a reliable and stable structure in terms of communications and accuracy.
