The SouthEast Alaska MOnitoring Network for Science, Telecommunications, Education and Research (SEAMONSTER) Sensor Web is operating in partially glaciated watersheds on the margin of the Juneau Ice Field. Data from distributed, heterogeneous sensors with irregular sampling rates is integrated in a PostGIS (PostgreSQL with GIS extensions) database. Data discovery, data browsing, the sensor web operation and management, and education and publication are facilitated by the integration of the PostGIS database and Geoserver to deliver dynamically generated geospatial output. This presentation will focus on the technology developed to operate the SEAMONSTER sensor web, the scientific motivation and results of the three years of study, and highlight the student opportunities for involvement in research provided by the project.
