Underground Sensing: Monitoring and Hazard Detection for Environment and Infrastructurebrings the target audience the technical and practical knowledge of existing technologies of subsurface sensing and monitoring based on a classification of their functionality. In addition, the book introduces emerging technologies and applications of sensing for environmental and geo-hazards in subsurface - focusing on sensing platforms that can enable fully distributed global measurements. Finally, users will find a comprehensive exploration of the future of underground sensing that can meet demands for preemptive and sustainable response to underground hazards.

New concepts and paradigms based on passively powered and/or on-demand activated, embeddable sensor platforms are presented to bridge the gap between real-time monitoring and global measurements.

  • Presents a one-stop-shop reference for underground sensing and monitoring needs that saves valuable research time
  • Provides application cases for all technologies that are covered and described in detail
  • Includes full, four color images of equipment and applications
  • Designed to cover a wide variety of underground sensors, from agriculture to geohazards
Dr. Pamukcu conducts research on soil and groundwater decontamination using electrochemical technologies, and on application of fiber-optic and wireless sensors for distributed measurements in geo-media and civil infrastructure. An expert on electro-remediation of soils and groundwater for more than a decade, Dr. Pamukcu co-owns patent...
