The program will teach students both the theory and skills behind field-based research, and graduates will be well equipped to lead field research expeditions in a variety of environments around the world. Classes include “Exploration Technology”, a course on […]

OpenCTD first soak test

The Open CTD ProjectJune 10, 2013

Two weeks ago, we launched Oceanography for Everyone–The OpenCTD, a crowdfunding project to develop a low-cost, open-source CTD. After a few days hunting around for the best sealants, I put the prototype (name pending, suggestions welcome) through its first soak test. The results were… mixed. I left the CTD soaking for 12 hours (with hardware removed) […]

What can we do with an OpenCTD – high resolution hurricane monitoring

The Open CTD ProjectJune 3, 2013

Last Friday we launched Oceanography for Everyone–The OpenCTD, a crowdfunding project to develop a low-cost, open-source CTD. This project won’t succeed without your help. To demonstrate how valuable a device like the OpenCTD is, for the next several weeks I’ll be presenting various projects that could be accomplished with access to low-cost CTD’s. First up […]

Oceanography for Everyone – Help us build a CTD!

marine science, Natural Science, oceanography, Science, The Open CTD ProjectMay 31, 2013

Head over to our Rockethub Page for more information! Conductivity, temperature, and depth (CTD). With these three measurements, marine scientists can unlock ocean patterns hidden beneath the waves. The ocean is not uniform, it its filled with swirling eddies, temperature boundaries, layers of high and low salinity, changing densities, and many other physical characteristics. To […]

Predation Matters
