Recent advances in earth-observing technologies have lowered the barrier to knowledge discovery by giving us the ability to observe phenomena at time and space scales that have previously been impossible to access. Sensor networks present potentially profound opportunities for improving our understanding and ability to manage large-scale environmental systems. This potential, however, is tempered by challenges associated with preparing the data for use in (near) real time, including performing quality control and integrating data from multiple sensors. This presentation will discuss the development of cyberinfrastructure tools that facilitate real-time customization of environmental sensor data streams, including integration of multi-agency data, fusion of multi-scale data, spatio-temporal aggregation, and quality control. To demonstrate how these tools will benefit real-time modeling of environmental systems, a case study will be presented that
addresses the real-time prediction of combined sewer overflows in the Chicago Metropolitan area.
