Lizard Island Deployments of the Facility for the Automated Intelligent Monitoring of Marine Systems - FAIMMS

Sensor network infrastructure was installed at Lizard Island in the northern Great Barrier Reef off Cooktown, Australia. The infrastructure consists of a base station mounted on the workshop of the Lizard Island Research Station (LIRS), two sensor poles that create the on-reef network and four sensor floats on which the sensors are attached. The network uses both 802.11 links and slower spread-spectrum links between the deployed equipment and a Telstra nextG link back to the mainland.

The sensors deployed consist of a Vaisala WXT520 weather station mounted on RP2, MEA Thermistors mounted on each of the buoys to give surface temperature and a mix of SeaBird SBE37 CTD and SeaBird SBE39 TD via inductive cables / modems on the buoys. Sensor strings (inductive cables) are run across the sea bed to position the instruments in deeper water.
