Sensor networks and geohazards
Environmental Sensor Networks comprise arrays of devices containing sensors, which are interconnected using a wireless network. These can be linked with other data sources and provide near real-time data to facilitate monitoring and understanding of the environment. When combined with decision-making systems, they can be used for disaster management. In this chapter, we discuss the evolution from logging, to sensor networks, to the environmental Internet of things (IoT). We highlight systems to investigate different geomorphological processes, then those that have already been used to investigate hazards. We then outline the challenges of software, data, and network integration.

Abstract

Environmental Sensor Networks comprise arrays of devices containing sensors, which are interconnected using a wireless network. These can be linked with other data sources and provide near real-time data to facilitate monitoring and understanding of the environment. When combined with decision-making systems, they can be used for disaster management. In this chapter, we discuss the evolution from logging, to sensor networks, to the environmental Internet of things (IoT). We highlight systems to investigate different geomorphological processes, then those that have already been used to investigate hazards. We then outline the challenges of software, data, and network integration.
