Abstract--In many areas of Earth science, including climate
change research and operational oceanography, there is a need
for near real-time integration of data from heterogeneous and
spatially distributed sensors, in particular in situ and space-based
sensors. The data integration, as provided by a smart sensor web,
enables numerous improvements, namely, 1) adaptive sampling
for more efficient use of expensive space-based and in situ sensing
assets, 2) higher fidelity information gathering from data sources
through integration of complementary data sets, and 3) improved
sensor calibration. Our ocean-observing smart sensor web pre-
sented herein is composed of both mobile and fixed underwater in
situ ocean sensing assets and Earth Observing System satellite sen-
sors providing larger-scale sensing. An acoustic communications
