Remote Monitoring STEM Project
LagoonNet© is a distributed remote sensing STEM project that provides students and citizen scientists with the tools and technology to monitor the progress of Indian River Lagoon recovery efforts. The LagoonNet© water quality-monitoring network will cover most of the 156 miles of the Indian River Lagoon.
Citizens, decision makers & researchers will be able to track Lagoon health and see changes before major problems surface.
