The engineering community has made great advances over the past decade developing wireless sensor networks to measure the environment across complex landscapes. Yet, the micrometeorological community has been slow to adopt this new and novel technology in their research domain. This lecture covers many of the issues and complications associated with applying wireless networks in natural ecosystems. Topics covered include the need for power, calibration, representative exposure and the need to measure mass and energy fluxes instead of state variables. Suggestions and ideas for future collaboration and interactions are presented.
