  • Tern nest located located on the Isles of Shoals.

    In 2014, Jessica Carloni, a MS Student at UNH Department of Resources who is advised by Erik Chapman (NH Sea Grant/UNH Cooperative Extension) will begin research that will be aimed at Improving our understanding of common tern foraging behavior, post-breeding and non-breeding habitat use and migration.  She will also be conducting a Northeast regional assessment of research and network needs for conservation of both common (NH State Threatened Species) and roseate (Federally Endangered Species) terns.

  • Lidar remote sensing technology

    Airborne light detection and ranging (lidar) is a remote sensing technology that is proving increasingly beneficial in a variety of ocean and coastal mapping applications. Lidar systems use pulsed lasers in aircraft to measure ranges to the surface below. The range measurements are combined with position and orientation data to obtain accurate, 3D spatial coordinates (e.g., latitudes, longitudes, and heights) of points on Earth’s surface, as well as elevated features, such as canopy and buildings.
