Author Affiliations +
We outline a system for monitoring methane over the internet using a simple wireless sensor network. The system was developed for use at a capped landfill site which contains municipal solid waste. The sensor nodes use commercially available metal oxide semiconductor gas sensors to monitor and allow for a near real-time monitoring of gas emissions. This system is intended to complement the work of personnel who have to physically take the measurement using hand-held infrared instrument. We also outline preliminary testing of this system.
