1 Present measurement networks in Italy and future developments Renata Archetti DISTART Università di Bologna Luigi Cavaleri ISMAR - CNR

2 Italian Partners involved in Theme 9 Existing National networks for observations Research measurements infrastructures Acqua Alta tower M4 buoys Remote coastal observations Satellite observations Video Radar coastal observations Development of technologies for coastal processes observations Wireless sensor networks Low cost systems for video monitoring System for lagrangian measurements in the coastal zone Discussion

3 Italian Partners involved in Theme 9 CNR - ISMAR ENEA Acqua Alta Tower HF Coastal Radar M4 bouys Remote sensing Università di Bologna Video Monitoring ADCP Università di Salerno Remote sensing Università di Ferrara Video Monitoring Università di Venezia Remote sensing Regione Emilia Romagna-Daphne Joint Reasearch Center Manlio de Boni Equipted boat for off shore physical-chemical measurements Remote sensing Development of measurements instruments

4 RON TIDE Existing National networks for observations

5 The oceanographic tower Acqua Alta ISMAR-CNR Venezia wind speed and direction, solar radiation, humidity, air and water temperatures rainfall water levels (tides and surges) wind generated waves. The wave gauges system, which allows an estimate of the directional wave spectrum, has, with appropriate upgrading, been in operation since Calibration for remote sensing: Optical mesurements CoASTS COLORS ERS Radar altimeter

6 M4 Modular Meteo-Marine Monitor www. bo.ismar.cnr. it Sensori meteorologici direzione e velocità del vento, un sensore di pressione atmosferica, un sensore di temperatura atmosferica, un sensore per la misura dell umidità à relativa, ed un sensore per la misura della radiazione solare netta Sensori oceanografici di superficie sonda CTD SeaBird per misure di temperatura e conducibilità Sensori oceanografici di fondo e unità di memoria un sensore CTD SeaBird per misure di temperatura e conducibilità, un sensore di ossigeno disciolto SeaBird,, un torbidimetro ad infrarossi, con range da NTU, un sensore Tuner Design SCUFA II per clorofilla α,, un correntometro Single-point Doppler per la misurazione di direzione, velocità della corrente e della temperatura nel livello di posizionamento.

7 HF COASTAL RADAR The technology of HF Radar is based on the property of emitted Electromagnetic wave from a transmitting source being backscattered by sea waves Operating frequency: 25 MHz Spatial resolution : 750 x 750 m Range : > 20 km Magnitude error : < 5 cm/s Direction error : < 5 degrees Hourly radial maps are obtained averaging over a 1.10-hour interval with reference to a central hour The network of HF Radar is composed of three stations: Lido, Pellestrina and offshore Oceanographic Platform Radial data from two or more sites are combined to produce maps of vector currents within a regular grid.

8 Remote Sensing GIS&IMAGE ENEA laboratory tests and uses high resolution Image processing (Quick Bird, Iconos, Aster, IRS) jointly with multitemporal GIS spatial analysis (setting up new analysis methodologies to quantitatively evaluate hazards (and integrated risks) by natural events (mainly, but not only, coastal erosion and flooding) The researches aim to certify methods to made images useful for the coastal features analysis FOLIGNO Project- New technologies and methods for an integrated Land Planning at Municality level ENEA ACS - Bologna Settlements Flooding hazard agricolture GCP for image orthorectify FOLIGNO Project- New technologies and methods for an integrated Land Planning at Municality level ENEA ACS - Bologna

9 The capability of international community to live with natural risks needs to evolve from qualitative to quantitative approach and to refers to certified procedures to produce and to manage Geo-Data Coastline Displacement Beach loss /yr) That allows to evaluate priorities and made mitigation actions transferring towards local administrations new methologies, data and capability to correctly use new tecnologies (like RS and GIS) A special focus is given to project and set up certified GI data base (also trough metadata) and to elaborate methods to evaluate the possible future loss of coastal «goods» togheter with their vulnerability value Scenarios of coastal goods loss for 2010 and coastal evolution model LITTORISK INTERREG PROJECT- Mollise Littoral - Ortorectifued and georeferred PAN - IMAGE IKONOS (2005 yr)

10 ARGUS in Lido di Dante Raccolta immagini Connessione (DSL, LAN, tel) Sistema di archiviazione

11 Images types Istantanea: Snapshot (snap) Media: Time Exposure (timex) Variance Day-timex Time-stack

12 The ARGUS Station snapshot time-exposure variance timestack

13 ARGUS Video Monitoring Theme 5 Theme 8 Error=0.80 m

14 Development of technologies for coastal processes observations

15 Wireless sensor network research A hot topic in the international networking research community Sensor networks Massively distributed Prone to node failure Inexpensive devices Battery powered Heterogeneous nodes Creates new challenges for Data collection and storage Unified framework for heterogeneous nodes Quality of service requirements according to application Security and privacy of the data

16 Sensor Networking Challenges Error control Cross-layer optimization Data retrieval Data dissemination Localization / Positioning Data aggregation Energy-efficient protocols Interoperation of heterogeneous nodes

17 Wireless networks for coastal monitoring The wireless networking technology can be used for improved coastal monitoring systems Main benefits Real-time data collection and dissemination In-network network processing of data Possibility of automatic intervention Quick reaction to sensed environmental changes Abundance of working technologies Low cost Easy to deploy Mobility can be fully supported Some challenges Application requirements drive network design Deployment and maintenance in rough environment Choice of proper technology Interdisciplinary dialogue is needed Sensor interfaces Must match node interfaces Power sources and energy harvesting

18 Low costs system for videomonitoring Applications: Shoreline and morphological time and space evolution Hydrodynamics Turistic fluxes Ship traffic..many others.. The camera control software permits a remote operator to schedule image collection of specified types of images at arbitrary desired intervals. The associated PC based controller performs camera control and image collection, creates the timeaveraged images (thereby sharply reducing data transmission overhead) and transmits the resulting to the remote data collection center.
