MS of Operational Oceanography (MOO) Students trained over a 3-day workshop led by SEABER’s Quentin Tatibouet, testing RUCOOL’s new AUV the YUCO-SCAN. This new AUV is equipped with side-scan sonar, allowing our students to set out on the R/V Rutgers out of the Rutgers University Marine Field Station (RUMFS) with Capt. Chip Haldeman. Quentin explained […]
Dr. Hugh Roarty’s article “The Vessel Traffic Service Needs a Major Radar Upgrade” was recently published in US Naval Proceedings. Proceedings is a monthly magazine published by the United States Naval Institute. Launched in 1874, it is one of the oldest continuously published magazines in the United States. Proceedings covers topics concerning global security and […]
Rutgers Launches Collaborative to Harness University Expertise to Support Offshore Wind Energy Development
Rutgers has launched the Offshore Wind Collaborative to coordinate and build expertise in offshore wind research across the university community and to support workforce development pathways to employment in this industry.
