NEWRnet - North East Water Resources Network

NEWRnet study sites
Project Contact(s):

The North East Water Resources (NEWRnet) consortium of EPSCoR jurisdictions of Delaware (DE), Rhode Island (RI), and Vermont (VT) will create an advanced sensor network in watersheds for gathering high-frequency, spatially-extensive water quality and quantity data and a network of lab and field-based experiments and agent-based models to investigate how to align sensor data and their visualization with utilization by stakeholders. DGS is participating in the watershed sensing network by installing and operating a nitrogen and organic carbon sensor and stream discharge monitoring station in the Murderkill River watershed, and collaborating with the project team to interpret results.

Transforming Ground-Based Oblique Thermal Images to Enable Quantitative Analysis of Coupled Heat and Fluid Flow in the Critical Zone

Tom McKenna of the Delaware Geological Survey presented a paper entitled "Transforming Ground-Based Oblique Thermal Images to Enable Quantitative Analysis of Coupled Heat and Fluid Flow in the Critical Zone" at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco, Dec. 8, 2011, along with co-authors Tim Sliwinski, graduate student, and Jack Puleo, associate professor of civil and environmental engineering, of the Center for Applied Coastal Research.
