The Oceanus has arrived in #SanFrancisco! It's now time for data analysis and interpretation. Stay tuned for exclusive photos and videos from the trip, including #bts footage!

The Oceanus tied up at Pier 30–32 in San Francisco at 7:20 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 23, and we are still getting our land legs back. The time at sea has ended…

With researchers having profiled more than 150 kilometers of the ocean’s water column through 26 CTD deployments, the Oceanus is now headed to the docks of San Francisco.
We are nearing the end of this 10-day research trip, and as I’m writing, people are bustling around me in the process of deconstruct the labs they set up and packing up their gear. Researchers have…

All members of Jim Bishop’s team on board the Oceanus have been trained in key deck operations, such as working the tag lines during CTD deployment. UC Berkeley junior William Kumler, for instance,…

Metal-organic frameworks provide a new platform for solving the structure of hard-to-study samples.
Researchers have developed nanoscale display cases that enable new atomic-scale views of hard-to-study chemical and biological samples.

Two new Berkeley Lab studies find record low #solar prices across all sectors.
Solar energy system pricing is at an all-time low, according to the latest editions of two recurring “state of the market” reports released today by Berkeley Lab. Preliminary data for the first six months of 2016 suggest that prices have continued to fall within most states and market segments.

Without a solid support crew on a research vessel, the science cannot happen. Meet the crew of the Oceanus! 
To get data from the ocean, it takes a village. That village includes a highly trained support crew on the ship to make sure the science team members can perform their research without undue risk t…

“Oceana Incognita" feels like the middle of nowhere and has not been observed by satellites for the past six weeks... So now what?

+UC Berkeley +UC Santa Cruz +Florida State University
Outside the California Current, the last few experiments are being run aboard the Oceanus at a place Jim Bishop calls “Oceana Incognita.” The nickname came about because the location feels like the…

Check out our latest #blog installment from the R/V Oceanus where Berkeley scientists are using the latest robot technology to probe the secrets of the ocean's carbon cycle.
All robots are present and accounted for. The two Carbon Flux Explorers launched yesterday and the day before were recovered today, including CFE-Cal 2 with its experimental sample collection syste…

“Wind energy prices—particularly in the central United States—are at rock-bottom levels, with utilities and corporate buyers selecting wind as the low-cost option.” - Berkeley Lab Senior Scientist Ryan Wiser


Wind energy pricing remains attractive to utility and commercial purchasers, according to an annual report released by the U.S. Department of Energy and prepared by the Electricity Markets & Policy Group at Berkeley Lab. Prices offered by newly built wind projects are averaging around 2¢/kWh, driven lower by technology advancements and cost reductions.
