  4. Balloon Platforms for Remote Sensing of Water Quality in Mixing Zones

    SBC: MixZon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We hypothesize that lightweight infrared (IR) and video cameras mounted on a unmanned tethered helium balloon and accessed via a wireless network can remotely sense water quality at site scales. We will demonstrate the technical feasibility of a ground based network to monitor and control balloon mounted IP-enabled wireless IR and video cameras for measurement of the spatial distribution of surfa ...

  5. An Integrated Ecoroof Energy Analysis Model

    SBC: Quantec, L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    Vegetated roof (ecoroofs) offer diverse benefits, including energy savings and stormwater runoff reductions. Installation of ecoroofs in both new and existing buildings has expanded significantly during the past five years, with several local jurisdictions providing incentives for their installation and the LEED green building rating system offering multiple credits for them. However, discussion ...
