Wireless Sensor Networks design for earth science applications have led to an area of research often described as Environmental Sensor Networks. These have to tackle the often hostile environments being sensed, including volcanoes, oceans, forests, and glaciers.
This Special Issue will bring together papers that describe complete systems and their deployment, as well as key technological advances brought about by challenging conditions.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- radio communications for deployed WSNs
- energy management
- energy harvesting
- data management
- user-centered design and interfaces
- system management
- novel platforms and hardware
- autonomous behavior
- use of 6LowPan in real-world deployments
