In densely deployed wireless sensor networks, sensor observations are spatially correlated. Furthermore, the nature of physical phenomena constitutes a temporal correlation between transmitted observations of an individual sensor node. In this paper, we propose a joint iterative channel decoding scheme using turbo codes. The proposed decoder exploits the spatial and temporal correlations of two binary data sequences to achieve additional coding gain. Simultaneously exploiting the spatial and temporal correlation, the proposed decoder achieves large performance gain.
