The 2005 Lagrangian Transport and Transformation Experiment (LaTTE) has ended!
|The third year of the LaTTE project began on April 8, 2005 and ended on April 22, 2005. This web site will help you keep informed on the latest results of this five-year research experiment.
Participants included scientists from six universities: Rutgers University, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, University of Massachusettes-Boston, Florida Environmental Research Institution, California PolyTechnic State University, and the University of Florida - Gainsville.
The formal title of this project is known as the "Lagrangian studies of transport transformation and biological impact of nutrients and contaminant metals in a buoyant plume: a process study in an operational ocean observatory".
The research work is being funded by the National Science Foundation Program: Buoyancy-Driven Transport Processes as part of the Coastal Ocean Processes (CoOP) Program. Many of the new technologies used in LaTTE were developed through research grants from the Office of Naval Research (ONR).
Visit our LaTTE Press Room which includes press releases, newspaper coverage, questions and answers, live streaming video links from the COOL laboratory as well as the participating research vessels, interesting highlights, and current weather reports. In addition, we will have our COOL Classroom for K-12 educators engaging their students in our research activities.
We thank you for joining us this year! Come back again in 2006 where you can watch us over the web working in the lab or on the boats. You can also visit us at the Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences building in Room 109. If you wish to schedule a visit, please contact MaryMargaret Halsey at 732.932.6555 ext. 563.
