Hurricane Irene from NASA

A researcher’s decision to put an underwater drone in Hurricane Irene’s path is helping to transform the science of hurricane intensity prediction. Jan Ellen Spiegel | UNDARK.org In August 2011, with Hurricane Irene bearing down on the mid-Atlantic coast, Scott Glenn, an ocean engineering researcher at Rutgers University, made a bold decision. While most other […]

RUCOOL hosted a meeting with the Marine Technology Society leadership on March 14th. During the visit their administrative staff was immersed into hands on oceanographic research with Slocum underwater gliders and CODAR HF-Radar systems. Our undergraduate students stole the show on this day while having interactive and inspiring research discussions with Dr. Rick Spinrad, MTS […]

Our new Seabird ECO-55 Rosette is here! This rosette is equipped with 6 4-liter Niskin bottles, and will be directly connected to one of our Seabird CTDs, to collect water samples more accurately and with corresponding temperature and salinity data throughout the water column. It was purchased collectively by Grace Saba’s lab, the Raritan River […]

Janice McDonnell Interviewed on News12 NJ: Family Science Night was held at Great Brunswick Charter School in New Brunswick on April 4. The students were taught about outer space. The family night was funded through a grant from NASA and AT&T.
