CCOM has been awarded a three-year grant by NOAA's OER to partner with Saildrone, Inc. and the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute to develop applications for a new 72-foot, wind-powered, sailboat-like ASV.

CCOM researchers were aboard the I/B Oden where they joined an expedition whose aim was to answer questions about the role of outlet glaciers in draining the Greenland Ice Sheet into the ocean, and to look for historical changes of the glacier to show how climate change affects the marine cryosphere.
