The RTHnet program is being developed to support Penn State researchers with water resources interests as well as the broader hydrologic research community. Initially, the deployment and management of the RTHnet sensor arrays will focus on existing experiments located within Shale Hills, Leading Ridge, and Lake Perez catchments as well as new sites along Shaver's Creek and the confluence with the Juniata River. All the aforementioned watersheds are located within the Penn State Experimental Forest. The sensor arrays will be fully integrated with existing university, state and federally supported instrumentation at these locations (i.e., the USGS stream gauging network, the Leading Ridge EPA Acid Deposition site, and the NSF-Funded Shale Hills experimental watershed).
