We are pleased to announce our second annual Remote Data Acquisition Sensor Training Workshop, sponsored by the University of New Mexico Sevilleta Field Station and the Long Term Ecological Research Network Office. This intensive training workshop will be held June 16-22, 2013 at the Sevilleta Field Station in central New Mexico. We will employ a combination of field demonstrations, lectures, hands-on activities, and discussions focusing on three general topics related to the remote acquisition and transmission of environmental sensor data:
- Photovoltaic power for instrumentation
- Wi-Fi networking and telemetry systems
- Sensor theory and Campbell Scientific datalogger programming
Participants will be expected to pay for their own travel expenses to the Albuquerque airport in addition to a registration fee of $500, which will cover housing, meals, and other workshop expenses. Participants will share field station residences, typically with two people per room. Shuttle service will be provided at no cost to and from the airport.
The number of attendees we will be able to accommodate is limited. 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.
