Valarm Sensor Drone Airborne Sensors Tom Arnold Dickinson University Pennsylvania Smithsonian Researcher co2 acidification tracking climate change 1

Valarm is airborne! Dr. Thomas Arnold, a professor at Dickinson College, showed us how easy it is to get cloud-based + real-time + geo-tagged sensor data with drones and Valarm. Tom is a climate change researcher in the Department of Biology and Environmental Studies. Specifically, for this Smithsonian funded project he’s tracking acidification in the coastal zone.

You can do this using a Valarm-compatible GSM sensor hub connected to a CO2 sensor.

Valarm uploads the geo-tagged air quality sensor data to Valarm Tools Cloud where it is mapped, graphed, forwarded via APIs, or downloaded for further analysis.

We’re happy to see that Valarm software is being used for such awesome applications! For more on airborne CO2 monitoring, coastal vs. ocean acidification, carbon dioxide + marshes, and a video of Valarm sensors flying on a drone check out Dr. Tom Arnold’s blog post with extensive scientific details on what he’s up to!

This DJI drone has been Valarmed and is ready for takeoff to do real-time remote environmental monitoring from the skies!

Where will you fly Valarm sensors? What are you monitoring?

Here are other environmental monitoring applications where Valarm is deployed:


Do you, your teams, and your organization need to monitor air quality stations?

Also take a gander at these Air Quality Monitoring Systems we made with SC – AQMD (Southern California Air Quality Management District).

AQMD is a California government entity. SC-AQMD is responsible for air quality monitoring and compliance in Los Angeles, Orange County, and the great majority of Southern California.

This write-up shows how your organization can use sensor hubs, industrial sensors like Alphasense air quality sensors, and the Tools.Valarm.net gateway. This lets your organization rapidly deploy boxes to remotely monitor just about any air quality factor, like:

  • Particulate Matter – PM1, PM2.5, PM10 with Optical Particle Counters like the Alphasense OPC-N2
  • Specific Gases – O3 (Ozone), NO2 (Nitrogen Dioxide), H2S (Hydrogen Sulfide), VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds)

And there’s also our Fluids and Water Monitoring Systems to give you, your teams, and your organization your most effective water resources management tools.
