| Environmental sensing research deals with the acquisition of information by sensor systems, which can be used to support a diverse array of civil and military environmental and natural resource projects. Geographic information systems, positioning systems, and sensor systems are tools that are used in helping to understand and protect our nation's environmental resources. Sensor systems detects energy forms of electromagnetic, seismic, acoustic, visible, infrared, ultra-violet, micro-wave, chemical, and radiation are used in environmental sensing. The positioning systems used in environmental sensing make use of global positioning, laser, inertial, and radio frequency techniques. The sensing systems can be used to evaluate vegetation stress and growth patterns in both terrestrial and aquatic environments.
