Steve Ruberg

Join Making Waves for our Virtual Spring Confluence Conversation: Robotic and Real-time Technology for Ecosystem Observations.

Steve Ruberg will share his expertise on emerging robotic technologies that are providing immediately available information year-round and under ice. While research vessels with human crews will always be an important component of Great Lakes research and monitoring, robotic vehicles show promise for collecting routine ecosystem information and for operations in extreme environments.

INT 100 Approved.   The webinar is FREE.  You will receive the Zoom link upon registration.

Steve is an Observing Systems Principle Investigator and the lead of the Observing Systems and Advanced Technology (OSAT) branch at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory. At present the focus of OSAT is on advancements in remote sensing, autonomous vehicles, and winter ecosystem observations.
