On Integrating Groundwater Transport Models With Wireless Sensor Networks
Source: Colorado School of Mines
The emerging technology of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) is an integrated, distributed, wireless network of sensing devices. It has the potential to monitor dynamic hydrological and environmental processes more effectively than traditional monitoring and data acquisition techniques by providing environmental information at greater spatial and temporal resolutions. Furthermore, due to continuing high-performance computing development, these data may be introduced into increasingly robust and complex numerical models; for instance, the parameters of subsurface transport simulators may be automatically updated.
