Lessons learnt from the long term deployment of an automated, rugged, remote photographic monitoring camera for monitoring of Antarctic Coastal processes.
There is widespread recognition of the benefits in automating procedures for the collection of scientific data, and an increasing ability to do so as technology advances. The benefits are particularly relevant to long term monitoring programs in remote areas such as the polar regions where the costs of regularly accessing sites for repeated data collection are high.
We describe the benefits and lessons learnt from the long term deployment of an automated camera system for the collection of imagery from 40+ sites around eastern Antarctica.
