RBR Supports Early-Career Ocean Scientists in the RBR2020 Cohort Program

In January, RBR announced the 16 members of the RBR2020 Cohort, a two-year accelerator program for innovative early-career ocean scientists. Members of the cohort will be supported by RBR and leading ocean scientist mentors to develop their proposed projects, enable new measurements and methods, and communicate their results. Launched in September, 2019, the RBR2020 Cohort challenged applicants to propose innovative … Read More

WHOI’s ChemYak equipped with RBRconcerto CTD captures outgassing pulse during ice break-up in Cambridge Bay, Canada

In spring 2018, researchers from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) surveyed the Arctic nearshore of Cambridge Bay, Canada, by remote-controlled kayak equipped with an RBRconcerto CTD. The CTD and chemical data they collected captured the outgassing pulse associated with ice break-up and helped them identify the physical dynamics that created the pulse, allowing them to better constrain the annual greenhouse … Read More

Citizen scientists deploy RBR CTDs and collect valuable ocean data

rbr-citizen-science

Citizen scientists are a boon to oceanography. In a field where measurements are needed across 70% of the Earth’s surface and to depths of hundreds or thousands of meters, citizen scientists, collecting reliable high-quality data – often using RBR instruments – are adding pins to the data map. As their value is becoming more widely recognized, citizen scientists are being … Read More

Investigating seafloor crustal deformation with RBR loggers

Professor Ryota Hino of Tohoku University uses RBRsolo T|deep|slow and RBRduet T.D|deep loggers attached to a submarine acoustic ranging device to investigate seafloor crustal deformation. The submarine acoustic rangefinder accurately measures the distance between two points by sending a call signal from another device installed on the seabed at a remote location and measuring the time until the response signal … Read More
