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.
Scott Glenn, Co Director of RUCOOL, presented a plenary talk entitled “The Power of Partnerships: Offshore Wind Energy, Environmental Awareness, and Shared Economic Success” at the Rutgers Energy Institute’s (REI) 14th Annual Energy Symposium. The REI annual symposia provide faculty, students, staff, government officials and community members with the opportunity to learn about new methods, […]
On April 30, RUCOOL students in our Topics of Marine Science class were treated with a visit and inspirational talks by alumni Dr. Craig McLean (’79) and Chloe Baskin-Arboleda (’17) of NOAA. Each spoke about their careers and gave advice to the students on planning their own career paths. Dr. McLean, Acting Chief Scientist of […]
A researcher’s decision to put an underwater drone in Hurricane Irene’s path is helping to transform the science of hurricane intensity prediction. Jan Ellen Spiegel | UNDARK.org In August 2011, with Hurricane Irene bearing down on the mid-Atlantic coast, Scott Glenn, an ocean engineering researcher at Rutgers University, made a bold decision. While most other […]
