RUCOOL Celebrates the 500th Glider Deployment

This week, RUCOOL deployed the RU30 glider in support of work by Dr. Grace Saba to study ocean pH in the New York Bight. On board the R/V Rutgers for this deployment out of the Sandy Hook area was the Ocean Methods and Data Analysis undergraduate class. Data from this glider and others can be viewed on our Glider Deployment Pages.

RU30 was the 500th glider deployment that Rutgers has supported over the last 18 years. Congrats to Grace, Captain Chip Haldeman and the team on board the R/V Rutgers. We are already looking forward to the 1000th deployment!
