Real-time dike monitoring

The Netherlands is experimenting with real-time dike monitoring. Currently experimenting with continuous real-time dike monitoring. Changes in shape and temperature in the dike body can be tracked very precisely, continuously and objectively from several dozen kilometres away by placing optical fibres in or on the dike body, which is a significant improvement compared with the current method where inspection and monitoring of dikes is almost entirely dependent on human observations. The system indicates precisely where dike deformation is taking place. Online facillity for tracking temperature change, which are caused by changes in the water balance at a specific point in the body of the dike, due to seepage or drying out.
