The MARACOOS Region: Inland through the watersheds from Cape Cod Massachusetts to Cape Hatteras North Carolina, we seek, discover, share and apply new knowledge and understanding of our coastal ocean.
Satellite Imagery: Through ground stations located at Rutgers University and University of Delaware, we access research satellites providing a number of products including Sea Surface Temperature, Chlorophyll and Backscatter
Buoys: Buoys provide us with time series data at specific locations that aid in both atmospheric and oceanic forecasting and modeling
High Frequecy Radar: Our network of over 40 HF Radar Sites provide surface current mapping capabilities for the Mid-Atlantic Bight
Autonomous Underwater Vehicles: AUV's and gliders are an integrated instrument platform designed to operate in the coastal ocean
