Over the last week, our graduate students got some hands on field work in the mid-Atlantic. On October 25th, Jackie Veatch, Joe Anarumo and Julia Engdahl deployed RU28 for its NJDEP funded water quality testing mission along the NJ coast. This glider mission, deployed by the all-grad-student crew, can be tracked here: /cool/data/gliders/
In addition, on November 1, Joe and Julia accompanied CODAR aficionado, Ethan Handel, on mission to upgrade the HF-Radar antenna at Sandy Hook, NJ. Our HF-Radar systems support numerous research projects, but are also used by the US Coast Guard to support Search and Rescue operations throughout the Mid Atlantic. More information about these systems can be found here: https://rucool.marine.rutgers.edu/data/codar/
Thanks to Julia, Joe and Jackie for supporting a successful week of field operations!
