The applications of IoT is rapidly expanding in environmental science and management, and the topics in this unit will cover aspects of IoT for water, air and noise pollution monitoring, extreme weather warning, river water flow monitoring, water quality management, irrigation management, flora and fauna monitoring, broadacre agriculture, protected cropping, biodiversity, ecosystems health, wildlife and more.
