UNCW professor John M. Morrison is leading a team of scientists from UNCW; Cloudland Instruments of Santa Barbara, CA; Clyde Space of Glasgow, UK; NASA Goddard Space Flight Center; and Hawk Institute for Space Sciences who have received a two-year grant for $1,675,000 from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation as a “proof of concept to demonstrate capability to constuct low-cost autonomous nanosatellites to provide sustained, high spatial resolution and temporal resolution information about the surface ocean processes.”
First-of-its-Kind Model Forecasted Recent Underwater Volcanic Eruptions
In September 2014, Scott Nooner, assistant professor at UNCW, and
Bill Chadwick, adjunct professor at Oregon State University, forecasted underwater volcano Axial Seamount would erupt in 2015. Located about 300 miles off the coast of Oregon and Washington, it now appears to be doing just that.
A groundbreaking collaboration between the University of North Carolina Wilmington, Duke University and Ohio State University fuses physics, economics and oceanography toward quantifying the correlation between property values and beach nourishment measures—in other words, what would happen to property values if federal beach nourishment subsidies were to end.
