Innovation in Automation: Anomaly detection in in-situ water quality sensor data

We are currently going through a step-change in the way that measure water quality in streams and rivers. Inexpensive in-situ sensors are increasingly being used, which dramatically increases the spatial and temporal density of streams data. However, only a subset of water quality variables can be measured with inexpensive sensors at this stage and these sensors are relatively inaccurate and prone to sensor drift due to biofouling or battery failure. This goal of this project is to develop automated algorithms for detecting anomalies in multivariate water-quality data collected using in-situ sensors in near-real time.
