  • 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.

FIO’s new director- Dr. Monty Graham

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.

First in-person #FIO Council Meeting in nearly 3 years! A lot of information was covered today, including new programs, technology, and a review of FIO's Fiscal Year 21/22 Annual Report.
With over a dozen in-person and 20+ virtual attendees, the FIO Consortium was well represented. Thanks to everyone who attended and an extra special thank you to Dr. Quinton White, Director of the Marine Science Research Institute and the team at Jacksonville University for hosting us!

We started the day off with a 🌈 halo over the R/V Weatherbird II and R/V Hogarth!

Currently? No rainbow halo but a very high tide...

Happy Friday from #FIO

'"We've known about this species being able to do a little evolutionary trickery for maybe 15-20 years," said Monty Graham, a jellyfish expert and director of the Florida Institute of Oceanography, who was not involved in the research. "It's one of those papers that I do think will open up a door to a new line of study that's worth pursuing."'
