Ocean 180 Video Challenge is a national video competition for ocean scientists, judged by middle school students. Scientists are challenged to bring their latest research papers to life in a short video.
We are happy to announce that 2 CARTHE/Waterlust videos were in the Top 10 this year (Bob the Drifter and Drones at the Beach). Both videos were created by the Waterlust team, a group of creative scientists who focus on people’s relationship with water, and were based on CARTHE research.
The videos were judged by 37,795 middle school students and Drones at the Beach won FIRST PLACE!!
Congratulations to all of the scientists and videographers involved in making this great video!

CARTHE graduate student Conor Smith is featured in an article by the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative: After the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, many Gulf residents wanted to know where the oil was going and how fast it would get
Ocean currents are streams of seawater that flow in the ocean, and are caused by wind, gravity, earth’s rotation, and differences in density. Currents can carry animals, nutrients, and even pollutants with them as they move. Therefore, it is important
The 38th annual University of Delaware “Coast Day” was held on October 5, 2014 in Lewes, Delaware – the home of the UD marine school. UD faculty shared their research, gave tours of their research vessels, and offered
The use of drones during the Surfzone Coastal Oil Pathways Experiment (SCOPE) helped scientists from CARTHE study how oil moves from offshore onto our beaches! This is an innovate approach to a complex problem with powerful results. Check out this
While assisting the SCOPE team conduct experiments on the research vessel, our group was also collecting bacterial samples directly from the sea surface and subsurface water about 20 cm deep. We are especially interested in bacteria that are known to
Summary During the summer months of 2014, I worked under Dr. Shuyi Chen to compare data from OSCAT and TRMM satellites with the UMCM-WMH model for 10-meter wind speed and rainfall forecasts within the Gulf of Mexico. Comparisons of model
