Researchers Join OCEARCH on One-Of-A-Kind Collaborative Research Trip

OSEARCH-Logo-1_edited

When describing an upcoming research trip for Nova Southeastern University (NSU) scientists, ambitious is a bit of an understatement.

OCEARCH, which has earned acclaim for its research related to great white sharks, has invited scientists from a number of other organizations to join them for a unique trip up the Gulf Stream. What makes this expedition unique and ambitious is that (1) the vessel will drift up the Gulf Stream from Key West, FL to Cape Hatteras, NC (yes, they are turning off the vessel’s motor and the Gulf Stream’s current will carry the boat northward,) and (2) it involves nearly 40 researchers from 27 different institutions.

The trip will run from May 27 – June 14. This is the first time NSU research scientists are joining with those of OCEARCH – and, hopefully, it’s the start of continued collaboration as we all work to better understand the largest ecosystem on Planet Earth.
