Intelligent Environmental Sensing

  • Henry Leung
  • Subhas Chandra Mukhopadhyay


  • Presents recent advances in environmental sensors and sensing techniques

  • Overviews the fast growing sensor development and intelligent techniques for environmental sensing and monitoring useful for e.g. climate change or oil and gas exploration

  • Demonstrates how the sensors can be more sensitive and compact based on improved MEM or NANO technologies, as well as the sensing methods can be improved by using sensor fusion and intelligent systems

About this book


Developing environmental sensing and monitoring technologies become essential especially for industries that may cause severe contamination. Intelligent environmental sensing uses novel sensor techniques, intelligent signal and data processing algorithms, and wireless sensor networks to enhance environmental sensing and monitoring. It finds applications in many environmental problems such as oil and gas, water quality, and agriculture. This book addresses issues related to three main approaches to intelligent environmental sensing and discusses their latest technological developments. Key contents of the book include:


  • Agricultural monitoring
  • Classification, detection, and estimation
  • Data fusion
  • Geological monitoring
  • Motor monitoring
  • Multi-sensor systems
  • Oil reservoirs monitoring
  • Sensor motes
  • Water quality monitoring
  • Wireless sensor network protocol
