Pettigrew in AP article on new marine research vehicle

May 7, 2012


Neal Pettigrew, a professor of physical oceanography at the University of Maine, was interviewed for an Associated Press article in the Portland Press Herald about a new unmanned ocean research vehicle, Wave Glider, launched Thursday near Monhegan Island in the Gulf of Maine. A result of a collaboration between UMaine's School of Marine Sciences and Wave Glider manufacturer Liquid Robotics Inc. in California, and coordinated by the U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System, the robotic vehicle is powered by waves and controlled remotely to collect data on ocean conditions and identify the locations of certain tagged fish. Portland television station Channel 13 (WGME) and the New England Cable News website also carried parts of the AP article.
