The goal of adaptive sampling is to acquire high-resolution data in the important regions with relative less sensor nodes. We built a system to study the behavior of algae. The system consists of both static sensor nodes and mobile sensor nodes. The sensors equipped include thermistors and fluorometers. Thermistors measure one of key environment parameters for the growth of the algae while the fluorescence of chlorophyll provides useful pro xy for algal abundance. The system has been deployed in Lake Fulmor in James Reserve and the data collected in field are presented.
