In March 2021, USF COMPS headed to sea on the R/V Weatherbird to replace the C10 buoy off the coast of Sarasota, Florida. This buoy provides real time data on water velocity, wind speed, air temperature, water temperature, salinity, and more.
SECOORA collaborated with the FACT Network to install new acoustic receivers on buoys in North Carolina and West Florida. This is helping build bridges between oceanography and acoustic telemetry researchers to expand marine animal observations in the Southeast.

SECOORA’s 2020 Data Challenge Winner, Douglas Cahl from the University of South Carolina, has developed a new online tool that identifies eddies from 6km resolution High Frequency radar (HF radar) current data.
The curriculum, Water Shapes Our Planet and Our Lives, provides a unique, hands-on experience where students explore local weather, discover and create tools used by scientists to collect weather data, and evaluate long-term trends recorded by climate scientists. Each lesson is designed as an online teaching resource for both educators and curious learners.
