Brief description

Sensor network infrastructure was installed at Orpheus Island in the central Great Barrier Reef just north of Townsville, Australia. The infrastructure consists of a base station located on an existing mast at the Orpheus Island Research Station run by James Cook University, two sensor-floats or buoys - one located in Pioneer Bay off the Research Station and one in Little Pioneer Bay and three Relay / Sensor Poles - two located on the reef flat on the north-west point of Orpheus Island and one located on the southern point of near-by Pelorus Island. \n \nThe experimental design is to measure the intrusion of oceanic water onto the ocean (western) side of the island and through the channel that separates Orpheus and Pelorus Islands and secondly to monitor water temperatures and water parameters in the bays around the research station. \n \nThe deployment in August 2009 consists of a base station at the Research Station that use the nextG network to get the data back to AIMS and using the Campbell Scientific RF411 radios to create the on water wireless network. The base station talks directly with the two sensor floats, one in Pioneer Bay and the other in Little Pioneer Bay. Each float has a surface mounted thermistor and a bottom mounted SeaBird SBE39 that gives temperature and pressure (depth). This gives depth and surface and bottom temperature for the two locations. \n \nThe three Relay-Poles were installed in August 2009 with no instruments, these will be added in October / November 2009.
