pHOxy lady February 2019 Deployment Success

February 5, 2019

Cold weather and ice did not prevent the Rutgers RUCOOL team from deploying the pHOxy lady, our autonomous underwater glider that measures pH and dissolved oxygen, on Friday, February 1, 2019.  This glider is focused on observing ocean acidification processes in important commercial fisheries habitats in the Mid-Atlantic region. For this mission, the glider will run several cross-shelf transects off the coast of New Jersey, specifically in areas of important Atlantic surfclam (Spisula solidissima) and Atlantic sea scallop (Placopecten magellanicus) habitats.

Hopefully it will be warmer for her recovery!
