Title: Current, emerging and future technologies for sensing the environment
Authors: SFI
Keywords: Analytical chemistry
Chemical detectors
Environmental chemistry
environmental sensing
remote sensing
Issue Date: 2011
Publisher: USA EPA
Description: This paper reviews current technologies that are used for environmental monitoring, and presents emerging technologies that will dramatically improve our ability to obtain spatially distributed, real-time data about key indicators of environmental quality at specific locations. Futuristic approaches to environmental monitoring that employ fundamental breakthroughs in materials science to revolutionise the way we monitor our environment will also be considered. In particular, approaches employing biomimetic and 'adaptive'/'stimuli-responsive' materials will be highlighted, as these could play an important role in the realization of small, low power, low cost, autonomous sensing and communications platforms that could form the building blocks of the much vaunted environmental 'sensor web'.
