Join Confluence Conversations: Robotic and Real-time Technology for Ecosystem Observations

Steven Ruberg

Join the GVSU Making Waves Initiative for our Virtual Spring Confluence Conversation: Robotic and Real-time Technology for Ecosystem Observations on Wednesday, May 12th, 2021 from 7:00-8:00pm!

Steve Ruberg will share his expertise on emerging robotic technologies that are providing immediately available information year-round and under ice.

The webinar will take place over Zoom.  Watch for details at the MWI Confluence Conversations page.

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.

Making Waves about Water is a University initiative to create collaboration across campus among students, faculty, and staff, as well as with the community. The goal of the Initiative is to explore and investigate the many ways that water touches our lives, from being a life-force to defining GVSU in relation to the Grand River and Lake Michigan. The Initiative has the potential to clearly define GVSU: an institution providing a relevant, contemporary liberal education where theory is integrated with practice to prepare students for the challenges of our world.
