Brief description

Sensor network infrastructure was installed at Lizard Island in the northern Great Barrier Reef off Cooktown, Australia. The infrastructure consists of a base station mounted on the workshop of the Lizard Island Research Station (LIRS), two sensor poles that create the on-reef network and four sensor floats on which the sensors are attached. The network uses both 802.11 links and slower spread-spectrum links between the deployed equipment and a Telstra nextG link back to the mainland. \n \n The sensors deployed consist of a Vaisala WXT520 weather station mounted on RP2, MEA Thermistors mounted on each of the buoys to give surface temperature and a mix of SeaBird SBE37 CTD and SeaBird SBE39 TD via inductive cables / modems on the buoys. Sensor strings (inductive cables) are run across the sea bed to position the instruments in deeper water.\n The project looks to deploy sensor networks at seven sites along the Great Barrier Reef to measure a range of physical parameters at a range of scales. The project will install communications, data and platform infrastructure that will support future sensor work looking at biological and chemical parameters.\n This project is part of the Wireless Sensor Networks Facility (formerly known as Facility for The Automated Intelligent Monitoring of Marine Systems (FAIMMS)), part of the Great Barrier Reef Ocean Observing System project (GBROOS) (IMOS)\n
