NJ researchers analyze ocean data from storm
Description: Researchers headed 30 miles off Seaside Heights, NJ, a town crippled by Superstorm Sandy, to retrieve an underwater glider that collected data about how the ocean behaved before, during and after the storm. Researchers plopped the glider in the water Oct. 25. It has the ability to descend to the ocean floor and back up. The goal, researchers said, is to look at how water temperature, the mixing of sand from the ocean floor, depth and pressure affect the intensity of a large storm. [Source: San Francisco Chronicle]
