Abstract
Wireless sensor networks can revolutionize soil ecology
by providing measurements at temporal and spatial granu-
larities previously impossible. This paper presents an ex-
perimental soil monitoring network that we developed and
deployed in a Baltimore urban forest as a first step towards
realizing this vision. Each network node measures soil mois-
ture and temperature every minute and stores the measure-
ments in local memory. Raw measurements are periodically
retrieved by a sensor gateway and inserted to a database in
