Award Description: This award wil be used to purchase 3.5 kHz depth sounding tranducers for operations aboard the University of Miami?s R/V F.G. Walton-Smith, Oregon State University?s R/V Wecoma, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution?s R/V Knorr, and Scripps Institute of Oceanography?s R/V Melville. The equipment will meet the National Science Foundation?s intellectual merit criteria as well as research funded by other government agencies. The scientists utilizing these facilities will be supported with improved instrumentation and sea floor analysis for developing models of global weather prediction and ocean circulation. The equipment requested here will also support collaborative projects, such as point and non-point source coastal zone pollution and fisheries stock assessment studies. Through the continual upgrading and modernization of equipment and instrumentation provided for in this proposal, postdoctoral, graduate, undergraduate, high school, and technical program students, as well as, teachers, mentors and student/professional interns will benefit from the acquisition of new equipment. Participants in the sponsored research programs supported by these acquisitions will have in-depth exposure to stateof- the-art technologies, shaping the data-driven results of oceanographic and atmospheric sciences.
Project Description: We are currently in the process of selecting a US manufacturer of the equipment requested in the proposal.
