The Coastal Studies Institute will host the next Science on the Sound lecture on November 17, 2022. This monthly, in-person, lecture series brings perspectives from all over the state and highlights coastal topics in northeastern North Carolina.
Dr. Mike Muglia
, a coastal oceanographer at CSI and North Carolina Renewable Ocean Energy Program Assistant Director for Science and Research, will present his research with a presentation entitled “Renewable Ocean Energy Developments: Concepts to Kites”
. He will talk about several of the recent developments in renewable ocean energy from the North Carolina Renewable Ocean Energy Program and beyond. It has been an exciting voyage from theoretical devices to ocean deployments, and Dr. Muglia will provide an update on the present status of ocean current and wave energy harvesting devices and future plans for them.
Dr. Muglia’s presentation will take place on the ECU Outer Banks Campus on November 17, 2022, at 6 PM. He will be followed by Dr. Chris Oakley on December 8, 2022.
