The PermaSense project has set the ambitious goal of gathering real-time environmental data for high-mountain permafrost in unattended operation over multiple years. This paper discusses the specialized sensing and data recovery architecture tailored to meet the precision, reliability and durability requirements of scientists utilizing the data for model(More)
A vital factor for a successful deployment of sensor nodes is testing of all system aspects in a realistic setup. This work presents a testbed architecture which allows for detailed monitoring and stimulation of a wireless sensor node. In particular, time-accurate state extraction and power measurements are provided in a distributed, yet synchronized(More)
A significant need exists for in situ sensors that can measure chemical species involved in the major processes of primary production (photosynthesis and chemosynthesis) and respiration. Some key chemical species are O2, nutrients (N and P), micronutrients (metals), pCO2, dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC), pH, and sulfide. Sensors need to have excellent(More)
Woody debris is known to be transported to the seas and accumulate on the seafloor, however, little is known on the consequences of its degradation in the marine environment. In this study we monitored the degradation product sulfide with Au/Hg voltammetric microelectrodes on the surface and interior of an experimentally immersed wood for 200 d. After 5(More)
Wireless Sensor Network applications require dependable platforms that deliver correct and reliable operation over long periods. However, application characterization and exact system requirements specification can be complicated due to unknown environmental factors and system limitations. In this demo abstract we present a new approach to design space(More)
