CESN 2009 at a Glance
CESN '09 DAY ONE at the Boston Park Plaza
CESN PANEL I: SENSOR DEVICES, NETWORKS, CYBERINFRASTRUCTURE
This Panel Session will explore the applications of a variety of sensor networks in coastal environments, will provide perspective on the network development, deployment, cyberinfrastructure, and scientific processing of data, and will link those perspectives to coastal management and policy issues. The presentations will provide perspective on the advantages and limitations of the networks they describe as well as certain social, environmental, and economic issues on a variety of scales (local to global). Panelists will discuss the range of expertise that goes into developing networks and speak in depth about their particular experiences in contributing to multidisciplinary research and development efforts. The objective is to provide the audience with a better understanding of the wireless sensor networks as new kinds of scientific tools that can be applied to coastal management issues.
CESN PANEL II: SENSOR APPLICATIONS
This Panel Session will explore the applications of sensors to problems of social, environmental, and economic importance on personal, regional and global scales. Successes as well as failures of sensor applications, sensor applications within sensor networks, and unexpected applications of sensors will be highlighted by panelists from academia, industry, and government. The audience will gain a better understanding of a wide range of sensor applications and benefit from some lessons learned about applying new sensors to coastal environmental problems.
CESN PANEL III: POLICY AND MANAGEMENT-RELATED INFORMATION AND TECHNOLOGY NEEDS
This Panel Session will examine recent efforts to enhance resource managers' ability to measure, monitor, and manage the ocean and coastal resources. Panel presenters will address examples of using sensor-derived information in management practices, including: 1) Monitoring sound to manage protected areas of the marine environment; 2) the use of in situ and remote sensing to manage state coastal resources; and, 3) the employment of ground penetrating radar and marine seismic equipment to determine long-term shoreline changes.
