River and Estuary Observation Network (REON)

The River and Estuary Observatory Network is a real-time observation and monitoring network. REON enables continuous monitoring of physical, chemical, biological and atmospheric data from New York’s Hudson, Mohawk, and St. Lawrence River watersheds via an integrated network of sensors, robotics, mobile monitoring and computational technology. The first generation of REON I floating sensor platforms, or “B” series, first deployed in 2008, has provided the technological foundation for REON II, an expanded network of deployed Real Time Hydrologic Stations (RTHS) and REON water quality sensors. REON’s continuous data informs scientists, research analysts and students regarding dynamic water flows, constituent
