Adam Soule is not only a new professor of oceanography at the University of Rhode Island’s Graduate School of Oceanography, he is set to lead one of the largest research initiatives in the University’s history.Continue reading "New URI oceanography professor to manage $94 million ocean exploration institute"
Last month’s eruption of the Anak Krakatau volcano in Indonesia, and the deadly tsunami that followed, caused URI Ocean Engineering and GSO scientists to spring to action.Continue reading "Modelling the Anak Krakatau volcano, tsunami to better prepare U.S. for future tsunamis"
Scientists from GSO spent weeks at sea last summer on research expeditions designed to gain a better understanding of underwater volcanoes, microscopic life and Arctic winds.Continue reading "URI oceanographers explore world’s oceans to better understand underwater volcanoes, microscopic life, Arctic winds"
In the third installment of his blog, URI GSO student Jiahang Li finishes deploying ocean bottom seismometers and describes what it’s like to see Kilauea’s lava flow into the sea as he and Dr. Yang Shen study the ongoing volcanic eruption and related seismic activity.Continue reading "Seven Days Offshore of Kilauea: The Lava Meets the Ocean!"
In the second installment of his blog, URI GSO student Jiahang Li describes how ocean bottom seismometers are deployed & collected as he and Dr. Yang Shen study the ongoing eruption of Hawaii’s #Kilauea volcano and the accompanying earthquakes & tremors.Continue reading "Seven Days Offshore of Kilauea: Deploying the Seismometers"
URI Graduate School of Oceanography student Jiahang Li and faculty member Dr. Yang Shen are currently off the coast of the Island of Hawaii as part of a “rapid response” to the ongoing eruption of the Kilauea volcano and accompanying earthquakes and tremors. As the pair works with other researchers to deploy instruments on the […]Continue reading "Seven Days Offshore of Kilauea: Dockside in Honolulu"
