RECON
The Real-Time Coastal Observation Network (RECON) is a national network of low cost coastal buoys capable of seabed to sea-surface observations. GLERLMIL staff designed and built the wireless internet observation systems that have been deployed at numerous sites in and around the Great Lakes basin. Eachsystem collects meteorological data and provides sub-surface measurementsof chemical, biological, and physical parameters. The observation network  provides environmental data to state, federal, and university researchers,educators, and resource managers through the internet. Buoys are currentlylocated in Lakes Huron, Erie, and Michigan.
RTMON
The Real-Time Meteorological Observation Network (RTMON) consists of stationsin Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and on Tennessee Reef in Layton,FL. Stations in Alpena, MI, Muskegon, MI, Milwaukee, WI, Chicago, IL, andTennessee Reef, FL also include web cameras. All meteorological observationstations measure and record wind speed, wind gust, wind direction, air temperature,and wind chill. In addition, instruments in Muskegon measure dew point, relativehumidity, atmospheric pressure, and light level, and the stations in Alpena andMichigan City also include a rain gauge sensor. The data as well as camera imagesare updated at 5-30 minute intervals and displayed on GLERL’s website.
These meteorological observations are used in GLERL’s Great Lakes CoastalForecasting System to improve nowcasts and forecasts of wind, waves, water levelsand lake circulation.
