This glider was deployed on the 2nd international mission from the US Virgin Islands and is transiting to the British Virgin Islands in order to study heat flow through the Anegada Straight. Equipped with temperature, salinity, depth and current measuring instruments, this glider will  monitor water transport and heat content in the upper 1000 meters of […]

Sea Water Ocean Topography (SWOT) is a radar interferometry mission making SSH measurements over a swath 120 km wide. There is a nadir gap of 20 km where the error from interferometry is not meeting science requirement. The current candidate for the in-situ measurement is an array of gliders along the center of a swath […]

The need for the improvement of the hurricane intensity forecasts has been recognized by groups within the National Weather Service (NWS) and US Navy. Hurricane forecasting models require accurate ocean and atmosphere initial conditions to better forecast hurricane intensity. One way to improve the initial conditions in operational ocean models is to use data assimilation, […]

Underwater robot gliders are measuring air and sea interaction during hurricanes in the mid-Atlantic region. The little yellow submarines are part of a collaborative effort between Rutgers and Monmouth universities. Rutgers marine and coastal sciences expert Travis Miles says these 6-foot long gliders safely collect temperature data. “Ahead of a storm, you don’t want to […]

Assistant Professor Grace Saba is looking forward to working with her collaborators on this new and exciting project observing ocean acidification on the U.S. Northeast Shelf from the Mid-Atlantic to the Gulf of Maine. Click to read more…
