Technology Convergence Enabling Integrated Environmental Monitoring in Addressing Climate Change

Technology Convergence Enabling Integrated Environmental Monitoring in Addressing Climate Change

Climate change is a topic that is on everyone's lips, particularly after the conclusion of the recent climate talks in Paris. To address climate change, first there has to be climate monitoring. However, monitoring climate change is not an easy process given the area to cover. This requires powerful sensing and communication infrastructure and also require both to go hand in hand. Integrated environmental monitoring (IEM), in which monitoring environment parameters in real time, plays a very prominent role in assessing climate change.

Real time monitoring collects a huge amount of data and hence calls for powerful data storage and processing units. Consequently, to enable integrated environmental monitoring a number of technologies should come together. This study analyzes the different technologies that need to come together and converge to provide the required infrastructure. Technologies such as sensors, energy harvesting, Big Data, and Data Analytics will enable the development of accurate climate models.

The report aims at providing a wholesome idea about IEM, the technologies involved and the impact they will have on IEM and climate change.
