Researchers came aboard R/V ANGARI for a full day of collecting surface water samples in West Palm Beach, Florida. This expedition allowed the research team to test methods and train for their upcoming expedition to the Southern Ocean.
After Category 5 Hurricane Dorian barreled through the Bahamas in September 2019, researchers from Perry Institute for Marine Science and partner organizations surveyed reef sites in the affected areas of Grand Bahama Island and Abaco.
Researchers conducted Atlantic and Gulf Rapid Reef Assessments (AGRRA) at several dive sites throughout the Abacos and Northwest Bahamas, including some new survey sites that have never been explored before.
Participants in the 2019 Oceanography Camp for Girls became oceanographers for the day, exploring and implementing numerous scientific techniques to study the marine world while onboard R/V ANGARI.
For two days, an army of ocean lovers set out into the ocean to actively restore coral reefs. Recreational scuba divers joined experienced coral restoration practitioners from the Coral Restoration Foundation™ (CRF) to physically outplant critically endangered corals onto degraded reefs. ANGARI Foundation joined these efforts as an Ecosystem Sponsor for the event, and R/V ANGARI served as a dive platform and the primary vessel for transporting corals between nursery and planting sites.
Youth and mentors from the Tri-City Trailblazers team gained hands-on experience with marine science field work led by FIU scientists onboard R/V ANGARI.
Students from the Marine Conservation Club at Wellington Landings Middle School spent the day onboard R/V ANGARI assisting Florida International University (FIU) researchers with shark research and learning about marine science through hands-on activities.
Researchers and citizen scientists spent the day aboard R/V ANGARI conducting shark research offshore Palm Beach County.
Titan, OceanGate’s five-person composites-intensive submersible, set a world deep-sea dive record while preparing for its Titanic Survey Expedition.
USF scientists seek to characterize the concentrations and isotopic ratios of trace metals in the Gulf Stream, a location of some of the fastest ocean currents on the planet.
