Rutgers, NOAA and glider maker mark RUCOOL milestone For 30 years Rutgers’ Center for Ocean Observing Leadership (RUCOOL) has taken the lead in pioneering research that has changed our understanding of the oceans and the way information is collected. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Administrator Rick Spinrad joined Rutgers President Jonathan Holloway and marine […]

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 […]

Rutgers climatologists across New Jersey and the world are preparing humans to live in a changing environment, as rising sea levels and extreme weather impact our ways of life. At Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, we are helping urban communities, suburban communities, rural communities, farming communities and shore communities live with today’s reality […]

Please join me in congratulating our students here at the International Oceans Meeting sponsored by the Marine Technology Society and the IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society. The student poster competition brings the top students among all the student papers submitted to the workshop to participate in a competition. Rutgers had 3 of the 26 finalists in […]

National 4-H’s signature program, the 4-H STEM Challenge, inspires youth around the country to take an interest in STEM topics and careers. This year’s challenge, designed by Rutgers University’s Cooperative Extension team, teaches kids how to use STEM to explore Earth’s Ocean and how it relates to all life on the planet. Explorers of the Deep […]

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 […]

Congratulations to Lauren Cook on the successful defense of their thesis proposal!
