A real-time continuous chemical sensor network can obtain detailed data to analyze the dynamic behavior of water systems such as a lake. The behaviors of interest to us in Upper Mystic Lake are the effects of stratification on methane water chemistry and the results of water mixing between layers. To monitor the water chemistry, a network of three buoys is populated with various sensors. This paper covers the design implementation of the network architecture for transmitting sensor data between buoys and a shore station. The buoys' sensors and construction are also included.
