Environmental Sensors Workshop 2009 - Sensing our Environment and Responding to Change

When: Thursday, September 24th
Time: 10:00am to 4:30pm
Where: Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Quisset Campus, Clark Building, Room 507

Monitoring the environment utilizes a large variety of new research techniques and technologies. The combination of new sensors, robotics, communication systems and massive information processing is enabling a new generation of research that can sense and monitor different environments and analyze change in those environments.

Massachusetts research institutions have been successful in securing major grant funding to develop and build such systems - on land, in the atmosphere, and in the oceans.

Two major projects in this field are the Ocean Sensing project at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution's Coastal and Global Ocean Observatories and UMass Amherst 's Center for Collaborative Adaptive Sensing of the Atmosphere (CASA). MIT, Northeastern University, Boston University, UMass Boston and UMass Dartmouth also have significant research programs in this area.

The program will include presentations on new technologies and data analysis tools that are being developed, as well as discussions on their applications to the commercial sector and the product needs of both corporate and government users.
