Our services target people, communities, organizations, companies that need to generate information about water and nature, implement nature-based solutions and/or live experiences in nature, particularly in remote environments: generation of data, applied research and development of sustainable solutions, monitoring, installation of equipment, exploration and discovering; as well as transfer and share information and experiences.
The generation and access to accurate, representative and reliable data is essential to improve knowledge about natural processes, to plan and implement protection and conservation activities and, in general, ensure sustainable development of the planet and communities. However, data collection in remote, hard-to-reach areas can be time-consuming and technically and physically demanding. These areas generally have little data and many challenges to obtain them.
Carpe Science makes available to scientists, companies, public institutions, communities or anyone interested, reliable and otherwise unobtainable data: samples (water, soil, vegetation, geological formations, snow, etc.), measurements of variables, pictures or video, etc. Our team has extensive experience in the generation of information and data collection in nature (continental areas), especially in remote and difficult to access areas: high mountain terrain, deserts, glaciers and underground (cave, gallery, etc.). Our quality of scientists and outdoor experts allows us to access areas only accessible on foot and/or through special techniques and equipment.
While it is important to understand and protect nature, it is also important to enjoy it. Because we are part of it and we must remain connected to it: the biophilia. Carpe Science therefore offers outdoor and mountain activities mainly hiking, climbing, canyoning and climbing, all through the prism of environmental protection.
Currently we run 2 projects to discover nature, click on them for more information [in Spanish]:
We carry out studies of water resources at the local level, catchment level, or the most appropriate territorial unit for the problem posed. We put much efforts on the characterization of the hydrological and hydrogeological processes that occur at different temporal and spatial scales. For this, we use different tools: data generation campaigns, variable monitoring, study of geology, hydrogeochemistry, dye tracers, isotopic analysis, geophysics, generation of conceptual and numerical models.
We carry out project evaluations in relation to water resources:
- Evaluation of research and development projects proposals.
- Evaluation of research and development projects.
- Evaluation of humanitarian and development projects in water and sanitation, WASH (WATSAN).
Examples of projects evaluated:
- Evaluation of R&D proposals for different ANID (ex CONICYT) financing lines.
- Evaluation of water and sanitation projects financed by UNICEF in Haiti in the framework of the emergency response to Hurricane Matthew.
