Feasibility of soil moisture monitoring with heated fiber optics in excess of 10, m in length at high temporal frequency has afforded many important opportunities in environmental monitoring [e.g demonstrated the feasibility of using the thermal response to the diurnal temperature cycle of buried fiber optic cables for Cited by: The report contains the results of the initial feasibility study for a research program undertaken to develop the technology needed to use fiber optics for monitoring groundwater contaminants. The technology appears especially well suited to the requirements of detection monitoring where a few indicator parameters can be measured continuously. @article{osti_, title = {Performance specifications for technology development: Application for characterization of volatile organic compounds in the environment}, author = {Carpenter, S E and Doskey, P V and Erickson, M D and Lindahl, P C}, abstractNote = {This report contains information about technology development for the monitoring and remediation . Structural Monitoring with Fiber Optic Technology is the firs single author book on the new field of fiber optic structural sensing. As such it provides: coverage of the fundamentals of the technology, a coherent and systematic discussion on the most important aspects of the subject, a broad view of the subject, while retaining a degree of Cited by:

  The present work describes the testing and application of a low cost plastic optical fiber sensor on the monitoring of groundwater levels. Two sensors with different grove depth (½ and ¼ of the core thickness) and a resolution of 20 cm along 2 m of the optical fiber were produced and by: The report contains the results of the initial feasibility study for a research program undertaken to develop the technology needed to use fiber optics for monitoring groundwater contaminants. New geophysical methods are required for monitoring hydrologic processes at the catchment and larger scales, and for quantifying fluxes between groundwater and surface water. Fiber-optic distributed temperature sensing (FO-DTS) is an emerging technology that has promise for characterizing estuary-aquifer and stream-aquifer interaction and for. future enhancements such as Fiber to the Home (FTTH). This initial study will expand on the information areas above as well as provide a rough installation path recommenda-tion, iber lighting & maintenance, and some initial costs and numbers which should be expanded through a more in-depth economic impact study. 2.
