Brief description

Sensor network infrastructure was installed at One Tree Island in the southern Great Barrier Reef off Gladstone, Australia. The infrastructure consists of a base station mounted on the existing water tower and three sensor poles located in each of the major lagoon systems around the island. Each pole has a thermistor mounted at the base and then a thermistor string with five additional sensors that are located down the wall of the coral structure into the lagoon. \n \n The initial design is to monitor the flow of water through the lagoon which is often 'ponded' due to the high coral rim to the lagoon, this creates complex in and out flows and flushing of the lagoon system. \n \n The deployment in August 2008 consisted of the base station using the Telstra nextG service, three 6m relay-sensor poles located in the lagoons.\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
