Previous: Methodology/work description
Overall design and planning of the multi-site multi-parameter
observatory in Iceland including modifications of the present sites
to allow for various type of sensors to be connected and design and
evaluation of infrastructure including electricity production and
communications solutions for the very remote data acquisition sites.
Corresponding design and planning for facilities at the center in
Reykjavík to allow for the multiparameter observations transmitted
from the sites. Design and planning for integration of data from
the strainmeter network and water-level network into the observatory
procedures will be performed. Various alternatives of electricity
production methods will be evaluated including the combination of
windmills and solar cells. Different remote communication technics
will be evaluated and tested in the remote areas. This will include
spread-spectrum data links and satellite communication systems.
Different methods of data compression for the different types of data
will be investigated.
