— The design of distributed, wireless, and embedded system is a tedious and error-prone process. Experiences from previous real-world Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) deployments strongly indicate that it is vital to follow a systematic design approach to satisfy all design requirements including robustness and reliability. Such a design methodology needs to(More)
The PermaSense project, a joint computer science and geoscience project, investigates the influence of climate change on permafrost and specifically the stability of steep rock walls in alpine regions and future natural hazard scenarios due to global warming. Current practice only allows to make observations in the mountain cryosphere using limited field(More)
The PermaSense project strives to collect long-term geophysical data for permafrost research in Switzerland. By now, we have successfully established two installations at Jungfraujoch and Matterhorn measuring temperature profiles, crack dilatation, pressures and conductivity in the alpine extremes at 3.500m a.s.l. The data is sampled continuously and(More)
Microfluidics, or lab-on-a-chip (LOC) is a promising technology that allows the development of miniaturized chemical sensors. In contrast to the surging interest in biomedical sciences, the utilization of LOC sensors in aquatic sciences is still in infancy but a wider use of such sensors could mitigate the undersampling problem of ocean biogeochemical(More)
— Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) applications today are hard to develop, often resulting in fragile systems with meager performance. We contribute to the coordinated development of WSN applications through the presentation of test and validation methods that allow for gradual refinement throughout the whole development flow. The methods described allow to(More)
Pockmarks are crater-like depression on the seafloor associated with hydrocarbon ascent through muddy sediments in continental shelves around the world. In this study, we examine the diversity and distribution of benthic microbial communities at shallow-water pockmarks adjacent to the Middle Adriatic Ridge. We integrate microbial diversity data with(More)
— The Deployment-Support Network (DSN) is a new, minimal invasive methodology for developing and testing wireless sensor networks (WSN) in a realistic environment. A device under test, e.g. a target sensor network is augmented with a redundant wireless backbone network and a second set of nodes to carry out the testing logic. Enabling a developer to test a(More)
