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.
On November 15, 2019 – our two Masters in Operational Oceanography students, Joe Anarumo and Julia Engdahl, recovered two gliders, ru28 and ru33, with glider technician Dave Aragon and the NJDEP. Thanks to beautiful piloting by Dave and Nicole Waite, the gliders were recovered only 80 yards apart, 3 miles off the shore of Atlantic […]
Two drifters from Pacific Gyre were deployed on Friday November 15, 2019. The drifters were deployed as part of a validation experiment for the surface current products that Rutgers produces. The drifters made several loops inside Raritan Bay then made landfall due to the northeast winds that struck the area over the weekend. The data […]
Over the last week, our graduate students got some hands on field work in the mid-Atlantic. On October 25th, Jackie Veatch, Joe Anarumo and Julia Engdahl deployed RU28 for its NJDEP funded water quality testing mission along the NJ coast. This glider mission, deployed by the all-grad-student crew, can be tracked here: Gliders In addition, […]
