As part of the Oceans Sciences Meeting 2018, Portland OR, this town hall event will unveil recommendations and next steps towards improving the characterization of the LCS, based on findings from the Committee on Advancing Understanding of Gulf of Mexico Loop Current Dynamics. Rockland Scientific is proudly co-sponsoring this event held at the Portland Convention […]

Rockland Scientific is seeking a talented and enthusiastic junior software developer to join our team in the Product Development department. Core duties are to develop complex applications for data visualization and user interaction, executed on a web server. Company Overview: Rockland Scientific Inc. develops and manufactures scientific instruments for the measurement of turbulence for use […]
With support from the ONR-Global program, the Environmental Fluid Mechanics Lab at UKZN, in collaboration with Rockland Scientific, is organizing a training workshop on Ocean Turbulence in January 2018. Rockland’s Dr Rolf Leuck, a leading international expert on the measurement of ocean microstructure, will lead the workshop. The course deals with both theoretical and practical […]
In 2010, 2-axis piezo-accelerometers (vibration sensors) and a precision inclinometer accurate to 0.1 degrees replaced three DC-response accelerometers in Rockland instruments. The new system produces far better low-frequency angle measurements and a much improved signal-to-noise ratio for higher frequencies. The purpose of the vibration sensors is not to quantify the acceleration of a VMP or […]
On Monday the W.M. Keck Foundation announced USD $1.2M of funding to build a Hadal Water Column Profiler (HWCP) that will permit new exploration and understanding of the ocean’s deepest regions. This uniquely capable profiling instrument will, for the first time: • enable high quality physical, chemical, and biological sampling of the water column from the […]
QINGDAO, CHINA, November 3, 2017 – Rockland Scientific Inc. (Rockland), in cooperation with partners JFE Advantech (JFE) and Ocean Science & Technology Company, Inc. (OST-Qingdao), have successfully concluded the inaugural China Ocean Turbulence Workshop (COTW) in Qingdao this week. The 2017 COTW, with 45 delegates, brought together a wide range of Rockland instrument users from across […]
Rockland Scientific instrument users continue to push the operational boundaries of microstructure turbulence measurements. A sub-section off these microstructure data collection trailblazers have been developing “tow-yow-ing” techniques with the VMP-250 to gather underway profiles in the mixed layer. 1. Oregon State University Dr. Kipp Shearman, Dr. Johnathan Nash and the Ocean Mixing Group at OSU […]
Ocean mixing has historically been estimated using Osborn’s model by measuring the rate of dissipation of turbulent kinetic energy and the background density stratification N while assuming a value of the flux Richardson number, Rif. A constant Rif of 0.17 is typically assumed, despite mounting field, laboratory, and modeling evidence that Rif varies. This challenge […]
The MicroRider is a small instrument package for turbulence microstructure measurements, designed to integrate with a variety of marine instrument carriers, such as Gliders, AUVs, moorings, CTD rosettes, profiling floats and the WireWalker. Depending on the age if your MicroRider instrument, it will either have an IE55-1206-BCR or a MCBH(WB)-8-FS connect on the rear end-cap. This connector serves as the […]
Dr. Fabian Wolk and Dr. Rolf Lueck will be at the International Association for the Physical Sciences of the Ocean (IAPSO) Conference in Cape Town, South Africa from August 27 to September 1, 2017.
