A sensor network is described which obtains data
from nodes on and inside glaciers. Power management through
scheduling and selective control is used to allow a lifetime of at
least one year on batteries. Radio links in the glacier and across
2.5km distances are used for data and commands. The prototype
system was installed in Norway in 2003 and this paper describes
details of the full design for 2004 through discussion of the
lessons learnt.
