AGU Ocean Sciences Meeting

Rockland Scientific will be at the AGU Ocean Sciences Meeting in New Orleans, NO, from 21-26 February, 2016.  We will be in booth #212.

Rockland and Dalhousie University researchers combine to develop solutions for turbulence measurement at in-stream tidal power sites.

The need for improved knowledge of turbulence statistics in tidal energy generation has led to a trans-Canadian collaboration between British Columbia-based Rockland Scientific International and the Ocean Acoustics Laboratory (OAL) at Nova Scotia’s Dalhousie University to develop advanced techniques for turbulence measurements at turbine ‘hub height’.These new techniques will be traceable to a laboratory standard […]

ENERGY–International Partnership Advances Nova Scotia’s Tidal Industry

Nova Scotia is advancing its leadership position in the tidal industry with two new international research grants. The two projects, worth $1.43 million, will help governments, industry and researchers better understand the effect tidal technology has on the marine environment, and the impact of the marine environment on that technology. This is the first announcement […]

VMP-250 hands-on demonstration at Ocean Business 2015

Rockland is hosting a hands-on demonstration of the VMP-250 microstructure turbulence profiler as part of Ocean Business 2015, NOC Southampton. This course is free to attend, but registration is required on the Ocean Business 2015 website. The demonstration will be in two parts: a 1-hour field demonstration and a 1-hour classroom session.  Wednesday, April 15, 1:30 – […]
