Underground coal gasification (UCG) is a potentially effective methodology for mining underground coal. Further, there are various situations in which coal mining using conventional methods is formidable or costly, and, thus, UCG makes it feasible for recovering those coal resources from underground as alternative forms of energy. However, the environmental risk, particularly aquifer contamination, is a major bottleneck in adopting this technology by the industry. Concurrently, wireless sensor network (WSN) is a promising technology currently for use in various industrial process monitoring and control applications. The easy deployment, scalability, and low power consumption make WSN specially attractive. In this work, we propose a WSN‐based aquifer contamination monitoring and controlling system for the UCG plant. Copyright © 2014 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
