Researchers with Skidaway Institute of Oceanography, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, North Carolina State University, University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, University of Rhode Island and the UNC Coastal Studies Institute are working at Cape Hatteras to understand the processes that control the exchange of waters between the continental shelf and the open ocean.
The project is called Processes driving Exchange at Cape Hatteras, or PEACH, and is funded by the National Science Foundation. Oceanographic instrumentation will be deployed in the waters off Cape Hatteras, during a two-week cruise, April 15-29, aboard the R/V Neil Armstrong, a 250-foot ocean class research vessel operated by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
