I’m a research scientist at the Stroud Water Research Center who started in 2010 to combine my geeky geochemistry lab instrumentation skills with my general interest in technology. Our goal was to bring the lab to the field and put electronic “eyes and ears” in the environment for 24/7 observations. With National Science Foundation funding for the Christina River Basin Critical Zone Observatory, I was able to hire electrical engineer Steve Hicks. By the end of 2010 we together discovered the huge potential of open-source hardware and software to meet nearly all of our needs. The rest is history, and we’ve tried to record our accomplishments here. Join us in writing the future!
