PAL Calypso Coastal Research Mission with Under Water ROV

Grades 9-12  $175 registration

The Police Activities League of Egg Harbor Township and Atlantic County, (PAL/EHT&AC) in conjunction with the Rutgers/Jacques Cousteau National Estuarine Research Reserve (JC NERR),  Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), and Freedom Boat Club is spearheading a citizen science research mission and will observe first hand, our coastal marine ecosystem using the PAL’s Genneino Titan Underwater ROV. Observations of the local marine ecosystem will be conducted 40-50 feet below the surface and 3 miles off the coast of Brigantine over a 2 year period.  The data collected will assist local research to determine how dredging and sand replenishment along the coast affects our local ecosystem. 

We are looking for youth members interested in participating in Underwater research project as Student leaders, UWROV Pilots , UWROV Co-Pilots, Data Recorders and Social Media Agents.  Training will include; boating safety, ROV operation, camera operation, data collection, analysis and documentation.

 

Meeting dates and times will be determined by team members and mentors.

Please contact Michelle at (609)645-413 or michelle.riordan@ehtpal.org with any questions.
