Who We Are
The Delaware Environmental Observing System (DEOS) is a support tool for decision makers involved with emergency management, natural resource monitoring, transportation, and other activities throughout the State of Delaware. Our primary goal is to provide state agencies and the citizens of Delaware with immediate information about environmental conditions in and around the State. DEOS also archives data for historical environmental studies and research.
The GeoBrowser is a tool that provides users a way to access DEOS data through a geographic framework. In the GeoBrowser, you can select stations to see current conditions and access daily and monthly summaries. You can also view the latest weather radar and warnings from the National Weather Service.
DEOS provides real-time snow depth data for 18 locations across Delaware. The data are provided at different timescales, so as to more useful to the multitude of user groups who rely on the snow data from our system.
Agriculture/Irrigation Summaries are generated for most stations in the DEOS network. Data types in this summary include reference evapotransipiration, growing degree days, soil temperature, and soil moisture.
DEOS Network Station Updates:
There are currently no station outages at this time.
