Travis Miles, Professor of Marine and Coastal Sciences at Rutgers University, explains how ocean robots, known as gliders, have improved the accuracy of forecasts. Full video at Fox Weather

Researchers continue to advance hurricane science, leading to increased forecast accuracy and lead times As Superstorm Sandy approached the New Jersey coastline, a single Rutgers glider deployed off Tuckerton by hurricane scientists at Rutgers University Center for Ocean Observing Leadership, provided an ominous warning. The water mass known as the “Mid Atlantic cold pool”– an area […]

So have you ever wondered how meteorologists and weather forecasters predicted major storms weeks in advance? Well, ocean gliders that were originally used to help research ocean animals are now helping predict major storms. A group of professors at Rutgers University teamed up with workers at Orsted to help develop technology that will help determine […]

An NBC Philadelphia report on the effects of Hurricane Ian cancelling Chowderfest in LBI features Oscar Schofield (SEBS) discussing how sea level rise is fueling stronger storms. Full video at NBC Philadelphia

Dr. Travis Miles was interviewed by AccuWeather yesterday discussing the uses of Rutgers underwater Slocum gliders towards forecasting hurricane intensities at landfall. The coastal ocean temperatures play an enormous role in the intensification of deintensification of tropical cyclones as they approach our coasts. Gliders acquire data from the ocean surface to the ocean floor, and […]

Forecasters from the National Weather Service met with Rutgers’ graduate student Casey Jones this past February to discuss career paths within their agency.  The National Weather Service is tasked with providing weather forecasts and warnings of hazardous weather for the protection of life and property to enhance of the national economy.  Casey is presently a […]

Congratulations to RUCOOL grad student Sam Coakley on successfully completing his Masters defense entitled “The evolution of a stratified upper ocean under tropical cyclone forcing.” Sam will be moving on to work at the US Climate Variability and Predictability Program. Well done Sam, and we wish you the best of luck!
