Data Fusion for Environmental Monitoring
Environmental Monitoring is a very general term, comprising the whole spectrum of sensors and sensing—from local sensors to remote sensing from satellites. The term also implies a variety of sensor data processing aspects—from simple recording and report-generation to highly complex propagation models and prediction. This paper describes the aim of an ESPRIT project1 that focuses on the monitoring of river and ground water on the basis of distributed sets of sensors.
