UGA Skidaway Institute researcher Dana Savidge is leading a team of oceanographers, including Skidway Institute colleague Catherine Edwards, who are trying to understand the mechanisms that drive the exchange of water between the deep ocean and the narrow continental shelf in the area of the Outer Banks. Their project, Processes driving Exchange at Cape Hatteras, or PEACH, is described in an article on the University of North Carolina website.
Hurricane Florence is providing an unexpected research opportunity for UGA Skidaway Institute of Oceanography scientist Catherine Edwards. Edwards uses autonomous underwater vehicles, or gliders, to study ocean conditions, in this case, what happens in the ocean during a hurricane.
Her project is described in an article in Wired.
