  • FIT Utilizes R/V Hogarth for Ocean Engineering Students in the Keys and Dry Tortugas                       

Earlier this Summer, the R/V Hogarth departed from Bayboro Harbor for Key West on a two-week long FIO State University System (SUS) Sponsored educational cruise with Professor Stephen Wood and Ocean Engineering students from the Florida Institute of Technology (FIT). Dr. Wood was focused on teaching data collection at sea, shipboard deployment techniques on a variety of instruments and sensors, and much more. The cohort participated in a number of these enriched learning experiences on their way to Key West where another group of FIT Ocean Engineering students enrolled in the Marine Field Projects Course (OCE 4911, 12, and 13) joined Dr. Wood and the Hogarth Crew on the cruise back to St. Petersburg.

Florida Institute of Oceanography

For more than four decades, the Florida Institute of Oceanography has unified marine science interests across Florida in the cause of understanding and stewardship of the coastal oceans. FIO is taking a leading national role in the scientific assessment of the impact of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Florida is a state whose history, economy and culture are intertwined with the waters that surround it. Recognizing the need to protect and understand this central force and shared heritage, 20 institutions and agencies from across the state work collaboratively through FIO to maximize marine research and education resources. FIO’s goal is to provide a forum for addressing the challenges facing our oceans and develop strategies for civic engagement, natural resource management and public policy which preserves and protects ocean resources. The Earth system is changing and the future will require an educated and informed populace and a new generation of ocean scientists, engineers, and policy leaders to maintain a productive and sustainable environment. FIO aims to transform Florida’s scientific capabilities in ocean research while providing the education and marine management skills needed to protect our treasured marine environment.

4 bottom mounts were dropped off by the R/V Hogarth in the bay a couple weeks ago. Mounted on top of these mounts are devices called ADCP’s (Acoustic Doppler Current Profile), which record data on current velocity, wave height, and more.

I spy with my little eye something…green. That’s right, it’s the R/V Weatherbird II! Have you ever spotted one of our ships in the field? Be sure to tag us whenever you see them or even if you’re on board!

“Not many appreciate the ultimate power and potential usefulness of basic knowledge accumulated by obscure, unseen investigators who, in a lifetime of intensive study, may never see any practical use for their findings but who go on seeking answers to the unknown without thought of financial or practical gain.” - Eugenie Clark, popularly known as 'The Shark Lady'

What a pleasure it was to commemorate Dr. Clark's life's work and contributions to marine science and oceanography. Eugenie Clark now has a #USPS Forever Stamp in her honor 🎉
