2016 Applications Are Now Open

We are pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the 2016 offering of our Methods in Environmental Data Acquisition short course, also known as the Remote Data Acquisition (RDA) Sensor Training Workshop. This intensive course will be held 22-29 May 2016 and is hosted by the University of New Mexico Sevilleta Field Station in beautiful central New Mexico. By using a combination of field demonstrations, lectures, hands-on activities, and discussions, we will cover several topics fundamental to the remote acquisition of environmental sensor data:

  • Basic electronics
  • Photovoltaic power for remote instrumentation
  • TCP/IP networking and Wi-Fi telemetry systems
  • Sensor theory and Campbell Scientific datalogger wiring and programming

This year, we are offering two optional post-course field trips on Saturday, May 28th. We anticipate these field trips will enhance the overall experience of participants.

The number of participants we will be able to accommodate is limited. While preference will be given to technicians, graduate students, postdoctoral associates, and early career faculty who demonstrate research needs in one or more of these areas, anyone interested in the topic of remote environmental sensor data acquisition is encouraged to apply.

Thank you for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you!
