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.
RUCOOL scientists are engaged in polar research using both regional & global climate models, and via large collaborative efforts that utilize undergraduate and graduate fieldwork.
The RUCOOL Ocean Acidification Team develops and uses advanced observing technologies to address hypotheses related to identifying and evaluating the drivers of acidification.
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.
RUCOOL is innovating education practices to enable all humanity to be active explorers of their ocean planet, and to develop the next generation of ocean scientists & engineers.
