UC Berkeley engineering student Jerome Thai launches one of 100 floating sensors into the Sacramento River.  The Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta’s channel system supports California's agricultural industry and provides drinking water for 22 million Californians. The Floating Sensor Network project is a collaborative effort between the Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS), Berkeley Lab and its National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC), and UC Berkeley’s Departments of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Electrical Engineering. The project will collect data to help researchers and scientists better understand how water flows from the Delta to pumping stations and the San Francisco Bay. To learn more, check out the Floating Sensor Network's <a href="http://newscenter.berkeley.edu/2012/05/09/floating-sensors-track-delta-water-flow/" target="_blank">press release</a>. | Photo by Roy Kaltschmidt.
