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.
Dr. Justine McMillan and Jeremy Hancyk will be at the European Wave and Tidal Energy Conference (EWTEC) in Cork, Ireland from August 27 to September 1, 2017. Justine will be presenting her paper “An Assessment of the TKE Balance at a Tidal Energy Site Using ADCP and Shear Probe Measurements” at the conference.
