This summer Rutgers will mark the 23rd year of measuring the surface currents off New Jersey. The measurements were started at three locations Sandy Hook, Loveladies and Wildwood. The surface currents are measured using High Frequency Radar, a remote sensing instrument that can measure currents over the horizon. The instruments are manufactured by CODAR Ocean […]
At Rutgers, a committee of faculty, students and staff helped create a divestment policy that put an end to all investments in fossil fuels, moved those investments to environmentally friendly index funds which actively seek investments in renewable energy. “If we don’t do this work for the future that we’re not going to see, the […]
On May 10th, Rutgers President Jonathan Holloway presented RUCOOL’s Grace K. Saba with the “The Faculty Scholar-Teacher Award.” “Each year these awards honor members of the Rutgers community selected by their colleagues for outstanding contributions to teaching, research, and public service . . . I hope you share our pride in and congratulations for this year’s […]
The Rutgers University Center for Ocean Observing Leadership (RUCOOL) is creating knowledge of our ocean planet by pushing the limits of science and new technologies while inspiring future generations of ocean explorers.
The RUCOOL Hurricane Science Team develops and uses advanced observing technologies and models to better understand coupled ocean-atmospheric processes in tropical cyclones.
The RUCOOL Offshore Wind team develops and advances the science that informs decision-making around offshore wind, both at a state and national level.
Polar Science / LTER
RUCOOL scientists are engaged in polar research using both regional & global climate models, via large collaborative efforts that utilize undergraduate and graduate framework.
The RUCOOL Ocean Acidification Team develops and uses advanced observing technologies to address hypotheses related to identifying and evaluating the drivers of acidification.
Integrated Ocean Technology
RUCOOL develops and operates state-of-the-art ocean sensor technologies, integrating their data products together to get the most comprehensive 3d view of the ocean possible.
Empowering the next generation
RUCOOL is innovating education practices to enable all humanity be active explorers of their ocean planet. These tools are being used to develop the next generation of ocean scientists and engineers.
