This training workshop will focus on three topics related to the remote acquisition of environmental sensor data typical of LTER sites: 1) photovoltaic power systems, 2) Wi-Fi networking and telemetry systems, and 3) sensor theory and datalogger programming. We will employ a combination of field demonstrations, lectures, hands-on exercises, and discussions to illustrate these concepts. The target audience will include graduate students, technicians, post-doctoral associates, and early career faculty members who anticipate research needs in one or more of these areas. The workshop will be limited to 16 participants in addition to the instructors and invited speakers.
