Using our new Q&A system on PublicLab.org/questions, we’ve started to explore and test ways to use timelapse or “game cameras” to monitor possible pollution sites. There’s been interest in monitoring blasting at a mine site, monitoring a sand mining operation, and detecting runoff events in streams and rivers: https://publiclab.org/wiki/photo-monitoring
- What are the limits to using trail cameras on State Park land?
- Can we use a timelapse or video camera to monitor particulate air plumes?
- What’s the best way to archive/store a timelapse video?
- Has anyone used a timelapse camera in stream monitoring?
Also, if you’re interested in water quality, you can catch up on a lot of recent work at: https://publiclab.org/tag/water
