Our paper examines the potential role of IoT technology in supporting a deeper understanding of the natural environment, reporting on the design and “in the wild” deployment of an environmental IoT in Wales. We describe the design of this system, its requirements and operational effectiveness for hydrological, soil and ethological scientists, and our experiences from building and maintaining the system and its deployment at a remote site in difficult conditions. The project utilised a field deployment of sensors augmented by services running on cloud, thus, offering a shared data repository to stakeholders. The paper concludes with the assertion that this combination of technologies can transform our understanding and management of the natural environment. While IoT deployments are often a solution searching for a problem, it is the other way round in environmental sciences. View this paper.
