Abstract

Monitoring of water quality should not be solely based on laboratory samples. Such activity, although producing reliable results, cannot provide an accurate enough temporal coverage for water quality monitoring. The Finnish Environment Institute, SYKE, has therefore established numerous online water monitoring stations that continuously monitor water quality. The problem with the automatic monitoring, however, is that the recorded values are not reliable as such and need to be subject to quality control and uncertainty estimation. Here, as the main contribution, we present a computational service that we have implemented to automate and integrate the water quality monitoring process. We also present a case study regarding the river V a anteenjoki and discuss the obtained uncertainty results and their implication.
