URI opens Ocean Science and Exploration Center, Pell Marine Science Library

In a ceremony at its Narragansett Bay Campus on June 1, the University of Rhode Island opened the $15 million Ocean Science and Exploration Center and the Pell Marine Science Library.  The centerpiece of the 41,000 square-foot facility is the Inner Space Center, which will use a satellite system and Internet2 to make it possible for URI scientists and students to participate in ocean-going research expeditions without leaving campus. The Center will enable scientists ashore to “step aboard” research ships around the world as they use advanced undersea vehicles developed by the Office of Naval Research and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to explore uncharted regions of the world. Those ships include URI’s research vessel Endeavor, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Okeanos Explorer, and the Ocean Exploration Trust’s Nautilus.  Read more
