Abstract: To monitor the effects of climate change and to help the understanding and predictability, sensors have been installed in northern Québec. Salluit in Nunavik is among the villages of which a set of sensors has been installed. However, the collection of this data is manually done once a year by scientists. Given the importance of this information, Sentinel North project site 1.5 aims to measure, record, and send data in real time. Our project is primarily aimed at installing a wireless network that allows sensors to transmit data throughout the year, to anticipate risks and damages. The project design was launched in 2016, and the first work took place in summer 2017. After a successful data collection during the first months after installation, LTE network problems have occurred. Since the LTE connection is not reliable, the sensors were only visible from the university between 5% and 9% of the time, before a total loss of the LTE signal starting in January 2017. Environmental and meteorological conditions of the region have confirmed the challenges faced by such a system of wireless data collection. In this thesis, we detail the steps taken to deploy such a sensor network under extreme and unknown conditions. We also explain the challenges, problems and limitations encountered during the project and give recommendations and improvement for the future.
