KRONOS monitors variable sources for long periods of time simultaneously at X-ray, EUV, ultraviolet, and optical wavelengths. A major goal is to map the broad emission line regions of Seyfert galaxies using reverberation effects arising from the compact variable source of ionizing radiation and the finite light travel times from this source out to the surrounding sites of photo-ionized line emission.
