What is the COOLroom
anyway? Twentieth Century Science

Traditional oceanographic sampling techniques allow scientists to get only "snapshots" of what is taking place in the ocean, rather than a complete continuous picture. In the past, scientists worked independently within their disciplines to answer questions about the ocean. Let's explore how the COOLroom creates a collaborative environment where biologists, physical oceanographers, engineers, and ocean modelers work together to explore the coastal ocean.
