Sensor networks, comprising many radio-connected sensor systems, sensor webs which include airborne and orbital platforms, plus the newly emergent Internet of Things sensors have a great potential for impact on the geosciences. The use of networked arrays of sensors from multiple vantage points, coupled with wireless telemetry, cloud storage, and on-demand high performance computing, are enabling new observations for answering some of the most complex Earth system science questions.
This session aims to showcase sensor networks from across the full range of geosciences (e.g. marine, glacial, fluvial, soils, volcanic) and discuss the recent advances and challenges in this area. Papers are welcome on new approaches using multiple measurements, new telemetry, low power design, autonomy, instrumentation, platforms, deployment methods and cloud/analysis integration. Student papers and multidisciplinary work are very welcome.
With approximately 24,000 attendees in 2015, AGU’s Fall Meeting is the largest Earth and space science meeting in the world. 2016 will mark Fall Meeting’s 49th year as the premiere place to present your research; hear about the latest discoveries, trends, and challenges in the field; and network with colleagues that can enhance your career. Student posters are very welcome and provide an opportunity to show your research and get feedback from across the world.
