‘Betty’ returns with info about eddies

In May, Betty (our ocean glider), spent 24 days travelling 610km through the Cook Strait’s turbulent waters continuously recording temperature, salinity, oxygen concentration, light, acoustic recordings, and more. This data is important for developing better models.

Māori researchers’ hui

With all but one of our research projects underway, the time was right to bring our cohort of Māori researchers together to share research findings and discuss important issues such as IP and mātauranga Māori.

Uncovering the seas’ secrets

We’re pretty proud of Betty – the ocean glider we share with NIWA. She’s an amazing piece of marine technology that gives us detailed information about the oceans that we couldn’t get any other way.

Video: Why Tasman and Golden Bays?

Tasman Bay/Te Tai-o-Aorere and Golden Bay/Mohua are our ‘case study area’, where we are testing the tools and knowledge for ecosystem-based management (EBM) that we are generating.

Tracking Tasman Bay

Over the next 2 weeks, 14 drifters will monitor how water circulates in Tasman Bay, providing insights into issues such as where river sediment and nutrient plumes end up.

Video: Working together

This video explains what we're about; how we are working with Māori, government, industry, NGOs and communities; and what we mean by ecosystem-based management (EBM).
