As part of our research, we have designed and developed a sensor-actuated network for marine monitoring. The network consists of ten static buoy nodes and one mobile robotic boat for real-time in-situ measurements and analysis of chemical, physical and biologically pertinent phenomena governing the abundance of micro-organisms at relevant spatio-temporal scales. The goal of the network is to obtain high-resolution information on the spatial and temporal distribution of plankton assemblages in aquatic environments using the in situ presence afforded by the network, and to make possible network-enabled robotic sampling of hydrographic features of interest.
