Slide Words: Problematic, but possible with today’s cyberinfrastructure
Slide Image: An automated, instrumented buoy floating on the water in Yuan Yang Lake, with a beach and a tree-covered hill in the back ground. The same photo is shown eighteen times (3 rows of 6). Cyberinfrastructure to gather and transmit data from this number of buoys would severely tax the capabilities of most current research groups with typical research budgets. This scale of monitoring is possible but problematic with today’s infrastructure.
