NEW BOOK - Sensors in Natural Resources Monitoring

Welcome to PRESALES BOOK Sensors for Natural Resources Monitoring

Moving From Physical to Digital World - Sensors in Natural Science

Monitoring of our environment is one of the upmost t hings we can do to investigate behavior of natural systems of the Earth (surface and subsurface) and try to mitigate events of climate change (more frequent floods, extreme droughts, decreased crop yield, influence of pollution on human health...).

Understanding sensors and associated systems can help us to make more informed decisions related to management of natural resources (water, air, land). That is especially true for engineers working in natural resources (water scientists, environmental enginners, agriculture scientists) that for different reasons did not get knowledge from this advancing part of todays world (most often there is no room on their faculty syllabus to learn about sensors and their applications in their area of interest). Enginners from these areas can make a first group of people considered to benefit from this online course.

On the other hand, engineers in more technical areas (electronics, mechanics, programmers) usually are not introduced to physical, chemical and biological process that need to be addressed in their projects using sensors and associated platforms.

They also will benefit from this online course.

Basically what we need to do is to connect physical and digital world. Physical world is around us (temperature is 27.4 C for ex.) and it is analog in nature while digital world understand only 1 and 0.

MacKenzy consulting agency estimated that the market that connects the physical and digital world will rise to 11.1 trillions USD till 2025 (source BUG Croatian magazine)!

Course syllabus:

1) General importance of measurements in environmental science

2) Fundamentals of electronics and microcomputers

***Current flow, voltage, resistors, capacitors and power
***Transistors - device that transformed the modern world
*** Binary numbers and their importances in todays world
*** Transition from analog to digital world
*** How computers works - example adding two numbers with transistors
***The most popular microcontroller in the world - Arduino

3) Application of spectral sensors in natural sciences with practical examples

*** Monitoring of Harmful Algal Bloom in Lakes and Reservoirs

*** Photobiology and Spectral Sensors
*** Measuring Temperatures of Canopy Remotely

*** Measuring basic parameters of water quality (turbidity, ORP, pH)
*** Spectral Analysis of Minerals and Rocks

4) Sensors in Air Resources Management (both indoor and outdoor air quality)

*** Precise measurement of pm 2.5, pm 10 and organic contaminants both outdoors and indoor
*** Measure of indoor air pollution - different organic pollutants
*** Data transmission via cellular network

5) Sensors in Agricultural Resources Management

*** Volumetric water content measurement in soils
*** Automatic irrigation scheduling system
*** Measuring biological activity of soils

*** Suitabilty of water for irrigation

PRICE: 125 Euros

Dragan Kaludjerovic, PhD
Dragan Kaludjerovic, PhD

More than 20 years in the field of water and environment, specialist in quantitative hydrogeology applying his knowledge on projects in Europe, US, Middle East, Australia and Africa. Uncertainty analysis of groundwater models is his another specialization. One of top success was mentoring one of the top world Australian Mining Company in using specialized techniques of mathematical model calibration and uncertainty analysis with PEST.

His Ph.D. was done on the topic of groundwater remediation. On the Middle East he was working on a capital project where a huge database was established (more than 500 observation points).

Business Development and Marketing

Working from Serbia he manages to set up brand acknowledged on Geological Survey of UnitedStates Meeting in 2019/ as an example of how brand can be setup from distant country. Also, he organizeThe first online Conference Groundwater Science and Practice was organized in 2018. Proud to say that he become one of the moderators of the LinkedIn Groundwater Modeling Forum with 7000 members along with several university professors. Also, he raised 100000 USD for his Start-Up. Another Start-Up is currently under development.

Coaching other companies and their engineers

First started with 1 on 1 courses throughout the world (mostly USA) continuing with Environmental Science Education Program with 900 participants.Topics were Water Resources Management, Remote Sensing and Seawater Intrusion. He was accepted at The John's Hopkins University for online specialization in 2018 where he attended one semester of Air Resources Monitoring and Management. Due to catastrophic air pollution in his native country he stopped his specialization on JHU and devoted his time to mitigation of indoor pollution with a top company in that arena. He was again accepted to continue his specialization in JHU in 2020. As one of greatest achievement was invitation to train The John's Hopkins University Ph.D. student in interpretation of Mars geology. Due to COVID-19, the project was postponed by NASA.

Also, at beginning of 2020 he was elected to be a reviewer of The Book Coastal Hydrogeology for US journal.

Water Wells

During his consulting practices he was working with Roscoe Moss and arena of Aquifer Storage and Recovery with one of the fouder of that coin Davide Pyne for several years.

Publishing

He published over 20 scientific papers in his native language and the first one in English at MODFLOW Conference 1998. Also, published a book about Mathematical Modeling and Remediation that is currently under translation in English.

Sensors in Natural Resources

First started as his hobby after which his passion for electronics in environmental field was expanded and currently, he is writing a book on sensors application in natural resources.

Remote Sensing

By lunching of the Sentinel 2 satellite in 2016 he become interested in remote sensing and its application in water resources and agriculture. Did numerous projects in Agriculture and for big agriculture companies, the largest 10000 ha)

Summary :

His integrated knowledge of different disciplines in environmental science enabled him to develop a specific approach for managing natural resources (monitoring, modeling and remote sensing). Also, developing techniques for the determination of mineral resources from satellites was considered by several companies.
