Title

Hybrid sensor networks for hydrological monitoring

Abstract

"Accurate knowledge of the composition of soil properties is important to many domains, including agriculture, water supply management, and contamination control. Existing hydrological monitoring systems have numerous drawbacks, the most important of which are their cost and lack of autonomy, and the low temporal and spatial resolution of the data they collect. The research described in this thesis proposes to alleviate these problems by pairing high-resolution in situ measurement with remote data collection and software maintenance. The proposed system is a hybrid sensor network composed of wired and wireless connections"--Abstract, leaf iii.
