AUTONOMOUS UNDERWATER STATION
Explore our self-developed technological innovation to learn more about the alpine environment and climate change.
On a daily basis, the sensors of the station will measure the lake water level (pressure), pH, temperature, dissolved oxygen and salinity (conductivity). These five water parameters are critical for the species of fauna and flora that the alpine lake is able to support. Recording the changes in the hydrological conditions of an alpine lake, is the key to understanding how water of alpine lakes - and effectively the health status of that ecosystem - is being affected by climate change and human activities, indicating how we can help preserve it.
