A network of sensors for climate forecasts

Environmental scientists and IT and communication engineers have got together as part of the Swiss Experiment Project to try and assess the impact of climate change in the Alps at the earliest possible stage.
Swiss Experiment is aimed at yielding the most accurate environmental data possible using a network of terrestrial sensors in the Swiss Alps. It is also designed to facilitate the selection of the abundance of measurement data with which scientists are continually confronted. The scientists hope to be able to forecast avalanches, floods and landslides more accurately and as a result contribute towards the safety of the population. Environmental changes are also to be documented more efficiently.
