Large scale distributed e-infrastructures are emerging as commodity resource platforms. The next generation of commodity e-infrastructures will encapsulate the physical or tangible world by integrating ubiquitous sensors. Cheap environmental and physiological sensors are being increasingly deployed by many commercial organisations. The process of discovering and accessing commercially available resources requires a market for providers and consumers to trade these resources. This paper argues that developing a market will encourage the commoditisation of environmental sensor networks. It presents an overall architecture and adopts algorithms to support the trading of commodity environmental sensor networks.
