    • Modulation of chlorophyll concentration by the Indian Ocean Dipole 

      Stansell, Shelby
      The Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) is a climate mode that causes changes in the Indian Ocean sea surface temperature and precipitation. The IOD affects precipitation in far reaching areas such as Africa and Japan. It also impacts ...
    • The role of topography in precipitation on the maritime continent 

      Barnett, Michael
      The topography and abundant moisture supply of the Maritime Continent (MC) combine to produce copious precipitation amounts as sea breezes converge and interact with mountains. Therefore, the MC is a good region to study ...
    • Sands of time: a renourished beach vs. a non-renourished beach 

      Kilcullen, Tania
      The effects of beach renourishment were examined at two different beaches located in Brevard County, Florida: Avenue B and Ponce Landing. Two profiles were taken the summer of 2015 at Avenue B and one profile was taken at ...
    • Radar ornithology in the River Lakes Conservation area 

      White, Annaleisa M.
      The River Lakes Conservation Area also known as St. Johns River (Upper Area) is a known habitat for migratory birds. The NEXRAD Radar was used to observe a population of migratory birds during the spring of 2015. A daily ...
    • Statistics of the Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO) amplitude 

      Harris, Tia
      The MJO is the dominant intraseasonal (20-100 day) variability in the tropics. It propagates eastward at 5 m/s. An MJO event is separated into eight phases that correlates to the location of the MJO event. An MJO is measured ...
    • Occurrence of native mangroves and invasive Brazilian Pepper on Recreation vs. Conservation spoil islands 

      Ambrose, Hailey L.
      This study investigated the shoreline distribution of native mangroves and invasive Brazilian Pepper on Recreation and Conservation spoil islands in the Indian River Lagoon (IRL). Based on observations made from earlier ...
    • Verification of precipitation forecasts from National Weather Service high resolution forecast models 

      Reardon, Kelly
      An evaluation of the High Resolution Rapid Refresh (HRRR) model and the Weather, Research, and Forecasting (WRF) model was conducted for the NWS in Melbourne, Florida. The models were verified through the radar precipitation ...
    • Onshore wind acceleration across the Indian River Lagoon 

      Al Sabri, Mohamed
      A study of the onshore (easterly) flow crossing the barrier island and Indian River Lagoon (IRL), in east central Florida, was conducted during the summer of 2015 in association with the DMES Field Projects. Wind observations ...
    • Speed Meter 

      Aldhaheri, Ali; Aldhaher, Abdulla; AlSuwaidi, Buti
      The Speed Meter finds out the velocity and acceleration of a moving vehicle using the GPS coordinates. The location coordinates are used to calculate the velocity and acceleration using predefined formulae. The results ...
    • Light Exoskeleton Gear (L.E.G.) 

      Myers, Andy; Al Matouq, Ali; DeJesus-Banos, Kelsey; Vidmark, Jessica
      The L.E.G. combines the inherent mechanical support of a knee brace with extra assistance provided in a similar way as a robotic leg. Surface Electromyography (SEMG) sensors are connected to the user’s leg to assess ...
    • Supercapacitor battery 

      Drinks, Dale; Ballentine, Chris; Stross, Stephan; Wnek, Grady
      This project investigates the viability of supercapacitors as an energy storage device used to power a small robot. In order to demonstrate the charging and performance characteristics, the robot uses a supercapacitor array ...
    • Telepresence robot 

      Hijazi, Ahmad; Al-Khatib, Abdalqader
      To create a Telepresence robot which is a robot that can be controlled remotely via the internet by the user, allowing the user to navigate that environment as if they were in it. The robot will hold a tablet to facilitate ...
    • Power Buddy 

      Irwin, Otto; Campbell, Austin; von Friesen, Timothy
      The Power Buddy monitors the power consumption of any device that plugs into a standard outlet and provides remote access to that data and other helpful information. Users gain insight into how much power a device uses ...
    • Solar powered battery charger 

      Dudley, Jonathan; Krouth, Sheila; Loudon, Michael
