"Complementary Methods and Models"
April 19, 2013 Cyberseminar
Speaker:  Collin Bode - University of California, Berkeley
Title: HydroWatch: An Open Source Sensor Observatory

Abstract: The goal of the HydroWatch project is to observe in the same place and at the same time, the entire water cycle – in the atmosphere, trees, soil, ground water and stream. We have implemented a realtime wireless sensor observatory at the Angelo Coast Range Reserve in Mendocino, CA. Our study site is a small hillslope running from stream to ridge that is only 3,000m2 in size. Within this area we have ~700 instruments measuring microclimate, sap flow in trees, soil moisture, well levels and water chemistry, and finally attempts to measure fractured rock moisture. We implemented an open source variant of CUAHSI’s Observation Data Model database. This talk will focus on the implementation and operation of the sensor observatory.

We welcome your participation in CUAHSI's cyberseminar series, which is free and open to the public. Cyberseminars take place on Fridays at 3:00pm ET and are an hour in duration. All presentations are recorded and will be available on the CUAHSI website a week after the live presentation date.
