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 MARACOOS team and our partners have been preparing for the pending arrival of Hurricane Isaias, currently forecast to hit the Mid-Atlantic on Monday night. Ocean observations contribute to improved forecasting for storms. Working with other IOOS regions in the North Atlantic storm pathway (CARICOOS, GCOOS, SECOORA, and NERACOOS), MARACOOS provides valuable information on coastal […]
Scott Glenn and Travis Miles joined captain Jim Nickles of Monmouth University on the R/V Heidi Lynn Sculthorpe on July 22 and deployed two US Navy Slocum Gliders. These gliders are joining what will become a fleet of glider in the mid-Atlantic that will remain deployed throughout hurricane season. They will gather information about what […]
