Many thanks to Mr & Mrs Oughtred for facilitating this camera's location. This camera is capitally funded by Hull UniversityThe Energy and Environment Institute was established at the University of Hull in late 2016, with the vision to be an internationally leading centre for research that focuses on global sustainability challenges. It brings together leading interdisciplinary academics to tackle global issues surrounding climate change and its consequences on livelihoods. The Institute has three primary goals: to research and discover; to innovate and deliver impact; and to act as a regional anchor and beacon for world leading research and knowledge exchange. Within our “Global change, risk and resilience” theme, Institute staff are deploying a number of sensor arrays that will enable near real-time high frequency monitoring of water quantity and quality in a range of settings, from the urban environment around the University campus (https://www.hull.ac.uk/work-with-us/research/institutes/energy-and-environment-institute/our-work/sudslab-uk) and the towns of Doncaster, Immingham and Grimsby, to rural environments such as the River Hull catchment and the West Wolds catchment. The monitoring programmes will enable research and teaching in “living laboratories”, and are a pilot for wider initiatives and knowledge exchange with external collaborators. The Farson Digital camera at North Cave will be used for real-time flood and drought monitoring, allowing us to visually capture in-channel flood and drought dynamics, complementing the existing Environment Agency gauging network.”
