Who We Are
For over 10 years, DEOS has been providing real-time environmental conditions for Delaware and the surrounding region. Today, DEOS operates and maintains over 50 environmental monitoring platforms and brings in data from over 200 additional environmental monitoring platforms throughout our region. These data are used for a number of purposes. From forecast model initialization to emergency planning to crop water requirements, DEOS monitoring and data services are utilized across many sectors.
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.
The DEOS snow monitoring page provides real-time snow accumulation data for 18 locations across Delaware. It also has an archive of past snow events and information on how the snow measurements are taken.
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.
The DEOS station at Viola (DVIO) has moved to a new site due to siting problems that were adversely affecting the quality of the station's data. As a result, the station has been renamed to Woodside, DE-Willow Grove (DWDS). From a climate standpoint, this station is considered a new station, as it exceeds the distance required to remain a climatologically consistent station. However, the station still serves the same general area in Delaware and will once again serve as a snow monitoring site in the upcoming 2014-2015 snow season. Data from Viola will remain in DEOS and are available upon request.
