A new approach was developed for an underwater sensor network to simultaneously measure multiple environmental parameters, relevant for the research of aquatic systems. In marine science spatial and time-dependent variations of base parameters are of significant interest regarding environmental influenced biodiversity in shelf areas. For example, the influence of submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) on marine organisms are part of today’s scientific research . The sensor network consist of a fault-tolerant CAN-BUS topology and is designed to simultaneously measure at up to 120 different locations over a maximum range of 1 km providing excellent spatial resolution. First field measurements were performed and it has been shown that it is feasible to map multiple environmental parameters with good temporal and spatial resolution.
