Congratulations to Dr. Schuyler Nardelli on defending her PhD thesis entitled “Seasonal dynamics of plankton ecology in coastal Antarctica.” Schuyler will be moving on to a Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship at NOAA IOOS focused on marine policy. Through the fellowship, Schuyler hopes to step outside her comfort zone. “I am looking forward to learning how […]

Travis Miles (lead author) and Scott Glenn partnered with dozens of other scientist on this paper that provides a broad overview of the ongoing US hurricane glider project and details of a new effort with the Saildrone USV during the 2021 hurricane season. While this article focuses on the US East Coast, Gulf of Mexico, […]

SRI has extended its existing High Frequency Radar (HFR) scatter model for bistatic operation and is working on the initial steps in validation of that model with real data. The general operation utilizes available ocean wave spectra to estimate the doppler spectrum based on a HFR scattering model. The monostatic modelling has been done using […]
