Surface Water Tracker System Kangerlussuaq Bridge, Greenland


     PROJECT NAME Surface Water Elevation Tracker System Installed on Kangerlussuaq Bridge, Greenland
    CLIENT U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL)
    PROJECT LOCATION Kangerlussuaq, Greenland
    PROJECT PURPOSE In 2012, extreme melting of the Greenland Ice Sheet resulted in overbank flooding of the Watson River and a complete washout of the Watson River Bridge. The bridge has been rebuilt, which provides a new platform to install a radar sensor to measure water level, along with an air temperature/relative humidity sensor.

    AWARD & COMPLETION DATES Awarded: January , 2015 Completion: February, 2015
    EQUIPMENT & SERVICES Water Level Station  9210 Data Logger  Iridium Modem  AT/RH Sensor  Water Level Radar Sensor  30 Watt Solar Panel  55AH, 12 VDC Battery
    TELEMETRY Iridium Satellite Communications
    RESULTS & BENEFITS After a quick and successful installation of the sensors and Data Collection Platform on the newly built Watson River Bridge, the CRREL is now able to remotely monitor the water level in the Watson River in near real-time using the SutronWIN website.
