Plain English Summary

Introduction

  • The search for biogeochemical “hot spots” and “hot moments” that control ecosystem-level processes requires large multi-sensor measurement arrays.
  • The recent developments in open-source electronics prototyping platforms allow environmental observatories to deploy sensors at massive scales by reducing data logging and communications costs by more than an order of magnitude.
  • One popular hardware platform, called Arduino, has dozens of low cost boards that connect together in a modular framework, allowing the user to quickly create devices for a wide range of applications.
