HPWREN Collaborates with SDSU for Wireless Networking Demonstration at Local Ecological Reserve
On Saturday, May 5, the HPWREN team will be participating in a wireless demonstration at the Santa Margarita Ecological Reserve, located in the local Santa Ana mountains. The activity will connect four points within the 4344-acre reserve to demonstrate several new techniques for gathering environmental data via wireless technology.
In addition to the wireless demonstration, the event will showcase the myriad of research activities conducted at SDSU's living laboratories. The celebration will include an array of research displays, guided tours, hands-on science activities, natural history displays, real-time meteorological databases, and scientific specimens.
"The May 5 event will provide researchers an opportunity to learn about the new wireless techniques being used to gather data, and the general public will be provided a unique opportunity to learn about the natural world from researchers who are unveiling its secrets," says SDSU Field Station Program Interim Director Sedra Shapiro. "Activities like these allow everyone to gain a greater understanding of our South Coast Ecoregion."
