MARACOOS Executive Director Gerhard Kuska and Rutgers University Partners Scott Glenn and Travis Miles were interviewed by NBC Connecticut Meteorologist about the hurricane glider work being done in the Mid-Atlantic. This work is part of a partnership that includes NOAA, the US Navy, US IOOS (including MARACOOS) and many academic partners to study atmospheric/ocean interactions during hurricane season.

The 30 gliders launched this year as part of this partnership will provide data to help improve hurricane forecast models. (Learn more about the NOAA Hurricane Glider Project.)
