OceanScope Participants and Collaborators

The present OceanScope program was born from several long-standing collaborative ocean research projects on commercial vessels.    The program incorporated a long-standing private-academic-government partnership that originated with the OceanLab program on RCCL's Explorer of the Seas along with an ongoing research project on the freighter M/V Oleandor and several regional Ferry projects.

With our resumption of operations post Pandemic,  our project partnership has grown (see logos above).  Moreover, the reconstituted program will include greatly augmented Citizen Science participation as well as a close collaboration with the newly constituted Science RoCS (https://sciencerocs.org/) effort sharing personnel, instrumentation and expertise.  It will also include explicit collaboration in Ecuador with the staff of the Oceanographic Institute of the Navy (INOCAR) with respect to Flora’s work in the Galapagos.
