Sensor networks for glaciers: Glacsweb

Glacsweb probes
Glacsweb base station - with Rob at work

The Glacsweb designed a sensor network to monitor glaciers - including producing new hardware (node) designs, new radio communication network protocols and robust control and telemetry. It deployed systems in Norway and Iceland which produced continuous data previously unseen by glaciologists. The interdisciplinary research involved computer science, electronics, mechanical engineering, glaciology and GIS.
