Sensors and Sensor Networks

With our partner Hakai Energy Solutions, we design, build, and deploy telemetry systems and sensor networks to collect data in real time. On land, we monitor weather, streamflow, water chemistry, and other variables in coastal watersheds. In the ocean, we have deployed autonomous systems that monitor oceanographic variables using surface and subsurface moorings, cabled observatories, and ocean gliders. This allows us to collect information from across the land and seascape even when scientists cannot be physically present.
