Environmental monitoring networks are essential for understanding environmental dynamics of a given region if dedicated sensors and sensing systems are used. They are sensitive to external and internal fluctuations that can produce loss of capabilities of correct detection and retrieval of desired environmental quantities. Recent findings, in terms of smart grids and Internet of Things, have allowed the implementation of testing and characterization of such networks using new computation and simulation platforms that can deliver excellent results. This paper presents a procedure for evaluating the informative content of an actual network and a new approach of implementing a characterization of hydrological and environmental networks of sensors to be “stress-tested.” The proposed characterization is implemented by using Ptolemy II tool. It is an open-source simulation and modeling tool intended for experimenting with system design techniques, particularly those that involve combinations of different types of models. It is user friendly as described in final comments. This paper does not deal with power systems, intended as smart grid, but with smart sensors networking.
