Results from the MONOCLE Water Quality Survey are summarised in here. The survey was designed to be accessible to a wide range of experts in water quality monitoring, sensor development, research, and related stakeholder roles. Highly technical questions were avoided, with focus given to issues of sensor and maintenance cost for different observation platforms (e.g.professionals versus volunteers).



In August 2018 the international MONOCLE team gathered around Loch Leven in Kinross, Scotland for the project’s first field campaign.

This video diary shows some of the fieldwork in action as they test sensors and work with Citizen Scientists.
