Ocean turbulence is a key component in understanding climate change and the challenges of harnessing tidal energy. 2014-15 saw the addition of three more employees and the announcement of the RSI-led UK-Canada Trans-Atlantic funded In-situ turbulence replication evaluation and measurement (In-STREAM project). Rockland Scientific continues growth as the foremost expert, innovator and supplier of turbulence measurement instrumentation.

The Company
Rockland Scientific (RSI) designs and manufacturers high-accuracy instrumentation for oceanographic research. In 2015 RSI was selected to lead one of two projects, selected for funding through a joint research competition managed by U.K. and Canada not-for-profit research groups and government funded business and innovation accelerators.
In partnership with Dalhousie University, Black Rock Tidal, FloWave TT, European Marine Energy Centre, and Ocean Array Systems, Rockland Scientific will develop a new sensor system to measure the impact of turbulence on tidal devices.
Rockland Scientific offers a wide range of turbulence measurement systems for operation in the upper ocean and down to 6000 m.
The product lineup falls into three major categories: vertical profiling instruments; modular sensor packages for  deployments on AUV, gliders and other autonomous platforms; and customized measurement solutions for science, engineering, and security applications.
