Stripers, Skilletfish and Sondes: Jacques Cousteau NERR Serves Up Vast Research Possibilities

Stretching over 116,000 acres, only approximately one percent of which has been developed, the Jacques Cousteau National Estuarine Research Reserve (JC NERR) offers a large, pristine area on coastal New Jersey unlike any other. It is not only a haven for fish, birds and other wildlife, it is also a haven for researchers. Surrounded by highly populated developments in an area with prime real estate, JC NERR offers a glimpse back to a time when New Jersey was wild and untouched. “Our program here is very much place-based,†says Gregg Sakowicz, Field Researcher at Rutgers University and System Wide Monitoring Program (SWMP) Coordinator at JC NERR. “We have the support of the local community, regional representation and also a national database.

Subtleties of Submarine Groundwater Discharge and Coral Reefs

Coral reefs are among the world's most diverse ecosystems , home to about one-third of all oceanic species of fish, and tens of thousands of marine species in total.

Unfortunately, many reefs have been permanently damaged or destroyed, and of those that remain, about 75 percent are threatened. Those reefs that lie very close to shore, nearshore coral reefs, are in many ways the most important to humans—and the most imperiled.

Bioinspired Mantis-Cam Enables Underwater Geolocation

Viktor Gruev is a busy person. He's a professor twice over, at the University of Illinois in electrical and computer engineering, and at the Carle Illinois College of Medicine, where his research in imaging technologies leads to better diagnostics and treatments for patients. Gruev also spends a lot of time taking cues from nature, and he spoke to EM about recently publishing on two different innovative sensing technologies. “We had two big papers that came out this week,†explains Gruev. “One was on this underwater geolocalization camera , and the second paper that just came out yesterday focuses on a butterfly-inspired camera for cancer detection.
