Dr. Greg Garman, director of VCU Rice Rivers Center, interviewed on WCVE Public Radio

November 22, 2016

Dr. Greg Garman speaks to WCVE Public Radio's John Ogle about the recent relaunch of our smart buoy.  

The 850-pound, nine-foot-tall buoy settled into its new home on the James River the morning of October 26, 2016.  The buoy contains sensors that will measure atmospheric and water conditions, as well as the ability to track fish in the James River, including the Atlantic Sturgeon.   

The Rice Rivers Center buoy is one of 16 that make up the Chesapeake Bay Interpretive Buoy System.
