Abstract— Wireless Sensor networks is an excellent technology that can sense, measure, and gather information from the real world and, based on some local decision process transmit the sensed data to the user. These networks allow the physical environment to be measured at high resolutions, and greatly increase the quality and quantity of real-world data and information for applications like pollution control. A SensorWeb Network measures data related to geospatial information and can detect the conditions of remote places as a new instrument for environmental monitoring in the physical world. On the other hand the demand for computational and storage resources led us to Grid Computing. Grid is an infrastructure that involves the integrated and collaborative use of computer, networks, databases and scientific instruments owned and managed by multiple organisations. Grid applications often involve large amounts of data and computing resources that require secure resource sharing across organisational boundaries. In this paper, pollution monitoring for a healthy environment – a system that monitors pollution levels in the environment is proposed, using integration of Wireless Sensor Networks and Grid Computing
