Abstract

A wireless sensor network is distributed across the P301 Subcatchment basin P301. Each node has a series of ecological sensors to monitor snow depth, soil moisture, soil temperature, and global solar radiation, as well as a mote to communicate with the rest of the wireless sensor network. Each node in this network is designed to withstand the harsh mountain conditions, and the redundant nature of the wireless network provides stability and flexibility for communication to continue even if one of the motes is impacted.

The specific sensors were located to track variability in water balance variables between different tree species, as well as differences between locations under the tree canopy, at the drip edge of the canopy, and in open canopy areas. Additional sensors are located in the P301 meadow to provide additional data for meadow hydrology studies.

SSCZO -- Soil Moisture, Soil Temperature, Snow Depth -- P301 Water Balance Transect -- (2011-2018)


OVERVIEW

Description/Abstract

A wireless sensor network is distributed across the P301 Subcatchment basin P301. Each node has a series of ecological sensors to monitor snow depth, soil moisture, soil temperature, and global solar radiation, as well as a mote to communicate with the rest of the wireless sensor network. Each node in this network is designed to withstand the harsh mountain conditions, and the redundant nature of the wireless network provides stability and flexibility for communication to continue even if one of the motes is impacted.

The specific sensors were located to track variability in water balance variables between different tree species, as well as differences between locations under the tree canopy, at the drip edge of the canopy, and in open canopy areas. Additional sensors are located in the P301 meadow to provide additional data for meadow hydrology studies.
