TRANSFORMATION OF DISTRIBUTED ENVIRONMENTAL SENSING
(National Science Foundation)
This collaborative project with Oregon State University represents the continuation for three years of the Centers for Transformative Environmental Monitoring Programs (CTEMPS) serving the hydrology and environment science communities with fiber-optic distributed temperature sensing systems and developments. This project was recently awarded an NSF Major Research Instrumentation grant to expand our DTS systems and to bring in Smith College into the CTEMPs team. A full description of CTEMPS and how to request instrumentation can be found at www.ctemps.org.
