The objective of this project is to discover and develop technological methodology for biological scientists to more efficiently and economically collect, sample, and communicate via the Internet, in real or delayed time, raw field data from remote and difficult sites and sensors under a wide range of environmental conditions by using advanced forms of wireless data communications. This objective extends to creating, proving out, and describing models which can be replicated in a wide variety of biological research projects being pursued anywhere in the world by, or in support of, US science.
