ISSNIP Workshop on Monitoring the Impact
of Climate Change on the Environment
(In conjunction with ISSNIP 2008)
Sydney, Australia
December 15-17, 2008 

The ISSNIP Workshop on MONITORING THE IMPACT OF CLIMATE CHANGE ON THE ENVIRONMENT is to be held in conjunction with the International Conference on Intelligent Sensors, Sensor Networks and Information Processing ISSNIP 2008 (, in Sydney on December 15-17. The workshop will also feature a selection of invited talks by leading international researchers.

The impacts of climate change on delicate ecosystems will have significant and far reaching impacts. For example, Australias Great Barrier Reef world heritage area contributes almost $7 billion annually to the Australian economy. IPCC 4th Assessment projections include increased coral bleaching, linked to projected temperature increases as well as projected CO2 increases. As coral reefs show rapid responses to climate change at the global scale,
scientists, managers and policy makers can use reefs to examine the effectiveness of international attempts to understand and respond to the impact of climate change. Sensing technologies, particularly sensor networks, provide a mechanism for delivering new data for this purpose and thus a means for validating predictions.

Key topics:
The workshop will encompass issues relating to the climate change monitoring, sensing technologies in marine ecosystems, related sensor network technologies and the application and development of sensor networks for monitoring the impacts of climate change.
