Water Data Acquisition

Water Quality Monitoring Service in Tagus Estuary


An online monitoring UNDERSEE 'FerryBox' is installed since September 2019 in the Dafundo ferry, a passenger boat that navigates in a daily basis in Tagus River estuary, in Lisbon.

The project is made under the contract with MARETEC research centre from IST - University of Lisbon (project MyCoast), where the in-situ data, provided via FTP under the formats netCDF and ASCII, is further used to calibrate forecast numerical models of this research group. This project is an excellent example of successful public - private cooperation.

Data is being uninterruptedly collected since December 2019.
