urban environments. He has already developed prototype sensor network technology to monitor underground water distribution and sewer pipes in Boston.

CENSAM research will fall into five broad areas: the built and natural environment; urban hydrology and water supply; coastal environment; marine environment; and development of ways to monitor and model Singapores urban environment. The initial set of research projects are:

Built & Natural Environment

  • Urban Airshed Modeling
  • Interactions between the Built and Natural Environment

Urban Hydrology & Water Supply

  • Chemical Sensors for AUVs
  • Distributed Hydrologic Modeling and Data Assimilation
  • Continuous Monitoring of Water Distribution Systems
  • Cyberinfrastructure for CENSAM to Encourage Data Fusion
  • Systems for Measuring Subsurface Chemical Fluxes

Coastal Environment

  • Algorithms for Adaptive Sampling in Coastal Zone Environment
  • Algorithms for Creation of Solid Models from AUV Sensing Systems
  • Experimental and Theoretical Modeling of Sediment Clouds
  • Coastal Environment and Sediment Transport

Marine Environment

  • Feature Based Navigation for AUVs in Very Shallow Water
  • MEMS Pressure Arrays for Near-Field Flow Patterns
  • Guided Wave Optics for Flow-Sensing MEMS Arrays
  • Free-Space Optics for AUV Navigation and Map Generation
  • Algorithms for Adaptive Sampling in Coastal Zone Environment
  • Algorithms for Creation of Solid Models from AUV Sensing Systems

Integrated Modeling of Singapore's Environment (iMOSE) Regional Atmospheric Modeling

  • Island-Scale Boundary Layer Modeling
  • Ocean Modeling and Data Assimilation
  • Ocean-Atmospheric Modeling and Climate Scenarios
  • Basin Hydrologic Modeling and Transport
  • Environmental Impacts of Large Scale Biofuel Development in SE Asia
