Sumario: The goal of our on-going research is to develop effective and reliable tools formodeling the environmental systems of the Gulf of Mexico. For example, our on-goingresearch into methodologies for the prediction of water levels in the shallow watersof the bays and estuaries along the Texas Gulf coast. Our modeling approaches arebased on the real-time data collected by the Texas Coastal Ocean Observation Network(TCOON). TCOON is managed by the Division of Nearshore Research (DNR) incooperation with the Department of Computing and Mathematical Sciences (CAMS)both of Texas A& M University-Corpus Christi. TCOON consists of approximately50 data gathering stations located along the Texas Gulf coast from the Louisiana toMexico borders.In addition to a short description of our major data acquisition system for ourresearch efforts, this paper presents design issues, development issues, and test resultsencountered in the production of two supplemental data acquisition systems as wellas several of our environmental systems modeling efforts at Texas A&M UniversityCorpus Christi.Keywords: Data acquisition, environmental modeling, robotics.
