The impact of Environmental change on riverine ecosystem requires sustained observations of the river system. Of all ecosystem impacts, the quality of the water is serious concern as it provides water security to billions of people. In the Indian subcontinent, cleaning and rejuvenating the health of Ganges river ecosystem is the focal point of all river basin management plans. Currently, the scientific community faces the following challenges:
- Insufficient skilled man-power for water sample collection and analysis.
- Poor time series resolution (absence of real-time data).
- Absence of integrated data fusion.
- Absence of on demand auto-sampling capability.
