The 36-foot R/V Lowell Weicker will enhance the University's
coastal research capabilities. Equipped with laboratory space,
and open deck for small moorings, a large instrument well, and
an A-frame and winch that can handle 1,500 pounds, the vessel's
initial primary mission is to support the LISICOS program in
studying the coastal environment of the Long Island Sound. Both
LISICOS and the vessel are funded by an award from the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, with support from the
UConn Research Foundation. UConn Trustee and benefactor Richard
Treibick has endowed the Marine Sciences Research and Outreach
Fund to provide long-term support for the work undertaken by
UConn marine scientists and the R/V Lowell Weicker.
