The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) recently completed an independent validation study of the performance of the RUCOOL real-time weather model (RU-WRF) that is used for wind resource assessment work. Their study evaluated the input data and parameters used by the RU-WRF model, including RUCOOL’s innovative Coldest Dark Pixel sea surface temperature product, and compared […]

The technology used to observe ocean acidification – the shift in ocean chemistry driven by an increase in the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere due to the burning of fossil fuels and other human activities – has followed the same trend of innovation and scaling as computer technology. Measuring ocean chemistry traditionally involves […]

The Palmer Station Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) program is focused on conducting a long term study on the warming West Antarctica Peninsula. For 30 years this project has been documenting how melting glaciers and reduced sea ice are altering the marine food web spanning from plankton to penguins.  The project consists of 6 month surveys […]

Dr. Hugh Roarty visited with Dr. Erick Fredj from Jerusalem College of Technology in Jerusalem Israel from January 27-31, 2020.  Dr. Fredj has been a longtime collaborator with Rutgers University.  Dr. Roarty and Dr. Fredj discussed the state of the art for measuring and quantifying oceanic surface transport in the Mid Atlantic Bight.  They plan […]

Rutgers Assistant Professor Travis Miles is currently onboard the Tethys II, a French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) and Ifremer vessel, on a collaborative project with Lead scientist François Bourrin from the University of Perpignan. The project is focused on sampling particle fluxes and the dynamics of the Rhone River in the Gulf of […]

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ørsted U.S. Offshore Wind is proud to announce an exciting and innovative partnership with Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, the University of Rhode Island (URI), and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) to launch the Ecosystem and Passive Acoustic Monitoring (ECO-PAM) project. Ørsted signed an initial memorandum of understanding with Rutgers University in […]

Open to early-career researchers (post-doctoral scientists/engineers and pre-tenured faculty), the RBR2020 cohort will bring together scientists from around the world to enable innovative ocean measurements through collaborative workshops, technical developments, demonstration programs, and SciComm mentorship. The early-career ocean scientists and engineers selected for the cohort will participate in a two-year program to develop their project […]
