Water Level Monitoring in Dominica
We have supplied and installed a water level monitoring system in Dominica. The project comprised of two coastal sites with potential to extend to a third site at a later date. The data are required to establish a vertical datum for Mean Sea Level (MSL) in the short term and to enable the refinement of this datum value in order to provide data for operational, planning and climatological purposes in the longer term.
The system was delivered via OceanWise Licensed Partner in the Dominican Republic and wider Caribbean, Geomedicion, Instrumentos y Sistemas, SRL, in collaboration with UK based instrument manufacturer, Valeport with additional equipment supplied by Xylem. Data telemetry uses our ip.buffer Smart Telemetry unit and was enabled via GSM and GOES networks. Data management and dissemination utilises our cloud based Environmental Data Sharing and Publishing platform, Port-Log.net providing remote system monitoring and support – a major benefit for a small island nation state.
