Jack Greenhalgh (FRESH CDT – Bristol) – ‘A Journey into the underwater soundscape of a pond’

Freshwater ecologists have meticulously documented the biodiversity found in and around freshwaters for decades. However, researchers are now beginning to survey and perceive rivers, lakes, and ponds in a totally new way: by listening.

James Rand (WISE CDT – Bath) – ‘Should lake scientists go out and get wet a bit more?’

Humans conducting manual, water quality sampling will inevitably introduce temporal and spatial bias into the collected data sets. This occurs through the variability of the “when” and “where” of the human sampling regimen. Autonomous systems offer the potential to eliminate these biases, temporally from fixed systems and spatio-temporally from mobile systems. The aim of this presentation is to quantify some of these human water quality sampling biases in order to help evaluate automated systems ability to address them.
