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.
Other UD investigators include William Ullman and Yoanna Voynova (CEOE), Dan Leathers and Del Levia (Dept. of Geography), Shree Inamdar and Kent Messer (CANR), and Shawn Polson (DBI). This project began in August 2013 and is scheduled to run for three years.
