Methods in Environmental Data Acquisition: Remote Data Acquisition (RDA) Sensor Training Workshop

June 14, 2015 - June 21, 2015


Applications are now being accepted for the 2015 offering of our Methods in Environmental Data Acquisition short course, otherwise known as the Remote Data Acquisition (RDA) Sensor Training Workshop (http://sevfs.unm.edu/courses/rda/).

This intensive course will be held 14-21 June 2015 and is hosted by the University of New Mexico Sevilleta Field Station in beautiful central New Mexico. By using a combination of field demonstrations, lectures, hands-on activities, and discussions, we will cover several topics fundamental to the remote acquisition of environmental sensor data:

  • Basic electronics
  • Photovoltaic power for remote instrumentation
  • TCP/IP networking and Wi-Fi telemetry systems
  • Sensor theory and Campbell Scientific datalogger wiring and programming

This year, we are offering two optional post-course field trips on Saturday, June 20th. We anticipate these field trips will enhance the overall experience of participants.

The number of participants we will be able to accommodate is limited. While 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, anyone interested in the topic of remote environmental sensor data acquisition is encouraged to apply.

Please visit our website (http://sevfs.unm.edu/courses/rda) for more detailed information about topics covered, field trips, and course fees. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me directly.

Thank you for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you!
