From April 14 to 18, 2017, the Inner Space Center (ISC) will be supporting the University of Rhode Island’s R/V Endeavor during a science mission led by Professor Melissa Omand (GSO). On this 5-day cruise, Dr. Omand and a group of 11 URI honors students will analyze features of the shelf break, approximately 90 nautical miles south of Narragansett, RI. They will deploy oceanographic instruments to collect data that will be used to analyze the abundance and behavior of marine life on the shelf- from plankton to whales.
During the science mission, live video from the ship will be streaming to the ISC website. The general public is also invited to join scientists and students on board the R/V Endeavor for live interactions hosted by the ISC.
The events at University of Rhode Island Bay Campus and Rhode Island College are free to the public.
*45-minute tours of the Inner Space Center are available before the URI Narragansett Bay Campus live broadcast events. The cost of the tour is $5 per participant. Space is limited to 20 people and reservations are required. Registration closes 24 hours in advance.
Please note, the ISC requests for tour participants pay in advance of their tour.
