on the platform for a diagram of the basic sensors and equipment.
platform is a fully automatic data collection system that provides
high-resolution hydrological and meteorological data to scientists
and researchers. It functions without supervision, and can be
remote controlled via cellular modem. It has built-in memory to
provide backups for collected data. amd runs off of solar power-
charged batteries that can last for weeks in bad weather conditions.
An onboard computer is responsible for the control of the sensors,
and communications with the laboratory. This onboard computer
takes readings from the sensors at set times, and then stores
that data in its own internal memory. The data is then transmitted
to a data acquisition computer in the lab, where the data is parsed,
analyzed, and then visualized into graphical displays and then
uploaded to the website for real-time updates.
