URI professor emeritus and oceanographer Tom Rossby used the data the Oleander gathered, with colleagues in URI’s GSO, to produce a report on circulation in the Atlantic Ocean.Continue reading "Charting a course: URI professor draws Atlantic data from shipping vessels"
Three Saildrones launched from Newport, R.I., will spend the next six months in the Gulf Stream collecting ocean data to improve weather forecasting and reduce uncertainties in how much carbon dioxide the ocean absorbs.Continue reading "A transformative Gulf Stream mission"
A northward shift in Gulf Stream preceded rapid warming of the Northwest Atlantic Shelf according to new research led by URIGSO scientists.Continue reading "URI oceanographers reveal links between migrating Gulf Stream and warming ocean waters"
Saildrone, GSO and other partners team up on a Google.org project to send drones to the Gulf Stream to learn more about the CO2 in the ocean.Continue reading "Fleet of Saildrones will depart Newport, head for Gulf Stream"
A research team led by Saildrone with severa partners including GSO announced a new mission, partially funded by a $1.7 million grant from Google.org, which will use Saildrone Explorer uncrewed surface vehicles (USVs) to conduct oceanographic missions to gain unprecedented insight into the impact of the Gulf Stream on weather and climate.Continue reading "URI oceanographer part of pioneering study to improve weather prediction and global carbon budget understanding"
On February 3-4, 2021, the Ocean Decade U.S. National Committee will host a virtual event featuring Ocean-Shots, and several members of the GSO community will share their innovative proposals.Continue reading "GSO community proposes ambitious “Ocean-Shots” for the Ocean Decade"
WPRI’s T.J. Del Santo reported on GSO professor Jaime Palter’s launch of a Saildrone in Newport Harbor. The research mission will last 30 days as the drone gathers atmospheric and oceanographic measurements along the Gulf Stream.Continue reading "Cutting-edge Saildrone may help improve weather forecasts"
An ocean-going, wind-powered Saildrone will soon be gathering oceanic and atmospheric observations as its follows the Gulf Stream to support a GSO study.Continue reading "Next-generation, wind-powered ocean drone launched from Newport Shipyard"
A new study co-authored by GSO professor Jaime Palter explains how large-scale climate change already is causing oxygen levels to drop in the deeper parts of the Gulf of St. Lawrence.Continue reading "Study links climate change to the invasion of lower-oxygen water in Gulf of St. Lawrence"
