EPSCoR Track 2 - New grant from NSF EPSCoR will establish water resources network

Geographer Dan Leathers (standing), a lead principal investigator on the Delaware-Rhode Island-Vermont EPSCoR RII Track-2 grant, works with colleagues John Callahan of the Delaware Geological Survey and Kevin Brinson of the Delaware Environmental Observing System to download data from an environmental sensor to a laptop computer for analysis.

The Delaware Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) is a partner in a three-year, $6-million grant from the National Science Foundation through its EPSCoR Research Infrastructure Improvement Track-2 program.

The grant program supports research by consortia of EPSCoR jurisdictions. Through this award, Delaware will join with the EPSCoR programs in Rhode Island and Vermont to form the North East Water Resources Network (NEWRnet). Two million dollars of the grant will go to each of the three states involved.
