Postcard from Finland – Odds and Ends

Editor’s note: UGA Skidaway Institute professor Jay Brandes and graduate student Kun Ma are on a three-week research trip to a marine lab in Finland and sent this update. So yesterday the experiment ended. I think most people considered it a great success, even with several bags leaking. One always learns lessons from these sorts… Read more »

 

UGA Skidaway Institute gliders improve hurricane predictions

The models hurricane forecasters use to predict the paths of storms have become much more accurate in recent years, but not so much the models’ ability to accurately predict a storm’s intensity. Now, underwater gliders, operated by researchers at the University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography, are part of a national effort to use… Read more »

 

Evening @ Skidaway program to examine Georgia’s dynamic shoreline

Georgia’s shorelines are in constant motion. Waves, tides, storms and human choices all play a role in this daily dance. Barrier islands erode and accrete, while tidal creeks meander throughout the marsh, reshaping our coastline in predictable patterns. University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography researcher Clark Alexander will explore the ever-changing Georgia coast in… Read more »
