Delaware Environmental Observing System (DEOS)
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.

Delaware Geological Survey (DGS)
The Delaware Geological Survey (DGS) is a science-based, public-service-driven Delaware state agency at the University of Delaware that conducts geologic and hydrologic research, service, and exploration for the benefit of the citizens of the First State. The mission of the DGS is to provide objective earth science information, advice, and service to its stakeholders–the citizens, policy makers, industries, and educational institutions of Delaware. One of the primary responsibilities of the DGS is to monitor and report on the availability and quality of the groundwater in Delaware's aquifers. This is done by taking water measurements on a network of groundwater wells installed at various depths throughout the state, called the Delaware Groundwater Monitoring Network. DGS also plays a critical role in mapping the the extent of Delaware's surface and subsurface geology, studying numerous coastal processes such as beach erosion and wetland/marsh hydrodynamics, monitoring stream and tidal water levels during potential flood events, monitoring surface and groundwater supply during times of drought, and publishes the Delaware Water Conditions Summary, a monthly report summarizing the water availability across the state.

Office of the Delaware State Climatologist (ODSC)
The Office of the Delaware State Climatologist (ODSC) is the principal scientific extension service for weather and climate information for the State of Delaware. The mission of the ODSC is to serve the State of Delaware through the collection, archiving and dissemination of weather and climate data, through ongoing research pertaining to the weather and climate of Delaware and the mid-Atlantic Region, and to K-16 education across the State.
