FIO deployed the R/V Weatherbird II with NOAA CCME-II scholars onboard to conduct field sampling as part of the 2023 CCME-II Center-Wide Core Competence Training.
March 30, 2023
CCME-II at FAMU hosted two events in collaboration with NOAA OAR’s Office of Research, Transition, and Application (ORTA) and Uncrewed Systems (UxS) Research Transition Office (UxSRTO). This event, conducted in Carabelle, FL, also included participation from the Florida Institute of Oceanography providing FAMU scholars with an opportunity to participate in hands-on marine research activities aboard the R/V Hogarth. Students were introduced to various ways uncrewed systems are utilized in NOAA research, gained exposure to career paths within NOAA that integrate use of uncrewed systems, and learned about training requirements for operating UAS for research. They engaged in hands-on training on how to use sampling devices such as how to set, deploy, retrieve a shipek sediment sampler. Others also used a benthic trawler and a plankton tow for biological sampling.
