Web-Based Technology Creates Environmental Impact

Enviro-Net is a web-based platform for using ground-based wireless sensor networks for continuous observations of ecosystem function from virtually anywhere.

A result of Dr. Arturo Sanchez-Azofeifa’s research and development, researchers around the world have access to a vast amount of previously inaccessible environmental information that relates to the impacts of climate change in subarctic, boreal and tropical environments.

Enviro-Net has the potential to be important for agriculture and other industries in Alberta in documenting and measuring drought and other climate-related environmental changes.
