These are pictures from our second volcano monitoring sensor network deployment, this time at Volcán Reventador. We deployed a network of 16 wireless sensor nodes equipped with with seismic and acoustic sensors at the active volcano. The network spanned a distance of over 3 km and featured multihop wireless routing, time synchronization, reliable data collection and delivery, and distributed sensing for detecting eruptions.

This is a joint effort between Harvard University, University of New Hampshire, UNC, and the Instituto Geofísico in Ecuador. For more information on this project, please see our project website. You can also see pictures from our 2004 deployment at Volcán Tungurahua.
