Memorial engineering students recipients of the Peter Kohler Scholarship for the second year in a row
For the second year in a row, two undergraduate engineering students from Memorial are the recipients of the Peter Kohler Scholarship.
The deep waters of Smith Sound, Trinity Bay, hold many mysteries. Why did Smith Sound have a strong and vibrant cod stock during the moratorium? What happened to vessels that sank in the 1890s during an ice storm? Are there really internal standing waves, or seiches, in the waters and what drives them? These are questions surrounding one of the longest fjords along the coast of the island, questions that no one has been able to answer. A team of researchers from Memorial’s Marine Environmental Research Laboratory for Intelligent Vehicles (MERLIN) is searching for the answers in hopes of uncovering the mysteries of Smith Sound.
Recently, students from Memorial won an international competition where they were tasked with designing a safe and affordable ferry.
