Engineering and Business Merge to Create Sustainable Ocean Drifter

Data collection buoys are essential for gathering information about the ocean and climate, but these devices can also be unreliable when their batteries die and turn into ocean debris.    Students at the UNH College of Engineering & Physical Sciences (CEPS) and the Peter T. Paul College of... Read More
