Rockland attending Ocean Sciences Meeting (OSM) 2024

The Ocean Sciences Meeting (OSM) in New Orleans is less than 2 weeks away and we’re excited to see you there. Please come chat with our staff at booth #305 or join us at one of our scheduled events including, workshop, posters, presentations, and probe testing. 



On Monday Feb 19thRockland Scientific is hosting a special lunchtime workshop focused on turbulence measurements from autonomous vehicles. Titled “Science and technology development of persistent 

turbulence observations from gliders and profiling floats,” the workshop will feature presentations from key researchers around the world sharing their motivation, lessons learned, and visions for the future of turbulence measurements, ocean mixing, and climate change research!  The last 15-min will provide for a town-hall discussion with the speakers as panelists.  Lunch will be provided for the first 50 participants.  More information here 

Probe Testing 

Our Lead Support Technician Evan Cervelli will be reprising his role of Dr. Probe at OSM 2024! You are invited to bring your microstructure probes to OSM for inspection at the Rockland booth (number 305). The inspection uses specialized equipment equivalent to what is used when probes are sent back to Rockland. Shear probes will be tested for capacitance and insulation resistance, temperature probes will be dip tested to test for cracks in the glass tip, and micro-conductivity probes will be visually inspected.  

Probe testing sessions will be held at the Rockland Booth 15:30-16-30 on Tuesday and Wednesday (February 20 and 21). 


Our science and software teams are presenting posters on Monday 19 February (4pm exhibit hall) in the Observing Ocean Mixing with Autonomous Platforms poster session.  

Dr. Anneke ten Doeschate (R&D Staff Scientist) is presenting on Scalar Microstructure Observations from Autonomous Platforms at board 1499  


JP Juteau (Software Development Lead) is focusing on his work on In Situ Data Processing of Microstructure Turbulence from Autonomous Platforms (board 1498).
