Environmental sensing has been a highly compelling application driver for wireless sensor networks since the formation of the field. The lack of continuous energy supplies, dynamic radio environments and significant scientific interest for measurements derived from large-scale, high temporal and spatial resolution deployments, has made this a rich area of research. Despite the progress in the field over the past decade however, many research challenges still remain unsolved ranging from reliable network protocols, adaptive energy management and energy harvesting, through to improved methods for sensor calibration, anomaly detection and multimedia networks. This special issue will present recent research in a range of these areas, and help bring to light some of the key research issues which remain to be solved in order to make wide-spread environmental sensing a reality.
