Regional Real-time Monitoring of Oil and Gas Operations
Track: Environmental Management
Authors: Ashwin Dhanasekar
Colorado State University is proposing to establish a regional monitoring network that would provide real-time measurement of air and water quality pollutant surrogates. Heightened public concern regarding the safety of oil and gas development is partially related to a lack of easily understandable, current information regarding the presence of pollutants in water. The three key elements of the project are installing sensors, establishing a telemetry system and developing a public web interface.
