From sensor selection to data return: lessons learned (Panel Session)

submitted by: kkwaiser
Each panel member was asked to open with a 5-7 minute narrative based on personal experience on the topic of advanced aquatic sensors. Team assembly, funding avenues, technology considerations, and any of the minutia involved in deploying and operating advanced aquatic sensors may be discussed. This talk and others were part of the Advanced Aquatic Sensors (AAS) Workshop funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and held at the University of Michigan Biological Station from September...

Introduction to GLEON and a high-level overview of aquatic sensors

submitted by: kkwaiser
This session, presented by Kevin Rose, will provide an overview of advanced aquatic sensors. The session will provide general information on a wide array of sensors. What types of sensors are available? What are the basic principles behind these sensor technologies? What are the limitations of these sensors and what are some typical sensor applications? Due to the broad use of sensors, sensor knowledge, and sensor applications, we will strive to make this session interactive amongst workshop...

Autonomous Sensor Networks for Water Quality and Biodiversity Assessment

submitted by: kkwaiser
Many marine and freshwater water environments are too large and dynamic for efficient and cost effective data collection by sensor networks or robotic systems alone. Wireless surface and underwater sensor networks allow large-scale data collection although at a generally lower spatial resolution. Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) and Autonomous Surface Vehicles (ASVs) offer continuous data collection capabilities at a more localised (transect) scale. A method for improving capture of...

Case study of aquatic sensor deployments, data management solutions and cyber-infrastructure at the Hancock Biological Station by Susan Hendricks. This talk and others were part of the Advanced Aquatic Sensors (AAS) Workshop funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and held at the University of Michigan Biological Station from September 12-13th, 2011.

Great Data for Great Lakes

submitted by: kkwaiser
The Great Lakes Observing System (GLOS) is a nonprofit organization established to advance the coordination of the extensive network of people, processes and technologies needed to improve access to critical information that supports the safety, economy, and health of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River ecosystem. GLOS coordinates Great Lakes observations, information technology, data delivery products, and related services by developing a broad network of members and providing a forum...
