Abstract

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) play a noteworthy role in a wide arena of daily life, like environmental pollution control, habitat monitoring, natural disaster monitoring etc. Despite this fact, a little has been done towards utilizing this technology for the Subsurface Exploration. Subsurface Exploration basically refers to the extraction of hydrocarbons from the oil field. In fact, subsurface exploration is a very established field which has been practiced for a very long time now. It can be observed from the statistics that with the increasing rate of consumption of extracted hydrocarbons there has been no significant increase in the quantity and quality of natural resources extracted. In view of this the oil companies are not only constantly looking towards new sources of oil but also to improve the production of existing wells. This paper presents an overview of research that has been carried out in this direction and also the issues that still need to be debated upon.
