Woods Hole sensor network
Gathering and processing data for scientists and policy makers is one of the most significant ways that tech is helping the Earth. Advances in sensors, communications, and software tools make collecting environmental data easier all the time. The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute is deploying a sensor network off the cost of Nantucket Island in Massachusetts, which is designed to gather data on a wide range of environmental factors, such as changes to the ocean floor and water chemistry, over many years.
