So here is the process to call internationally from a Rutgers phone.
To call outside the RU campus-99
To call internationally-011
Country code for the Azores-352
Then area code and number
So saying the number we wanted to call was area code 123 and number 456-789, the full number would be
(The numbers in the azores only have 6 digits as opposed to our 7)
-Recieved another contact from John Wilkin, Ana Martinsfrom the University of the Azores dept. of oceanography and fisheries www.horta.uac.pt
-Recieved an e-mail from Raquel Toste (Hotel Manager), and replied asking about more information on lodgins, boat rental, and air travel
A more detailed map of Flores:
The airport is on the east side of the island in Santa Cruz and Tostes hotel is just north of that also on the east coast.
The next island to the east is Faial, over 150 km away so the possibility of hitting any islands if we fly the glider to the east side of Flores is slim to none.
I using and processing coastal radar data to better predict ocean currents. I will compare an older method of calculating currents to a new method and see if it is worth using operationally. This will all be used to help the coast guard in search and rescue missions. If i can predict the currents more accurately, then it will improve the chances of a successful rescue.
Finding trends of fisheries over the past 4 decades.
My topic is to plot NAO and AMO in matlab to match up with the fisheries data
I am determining the relationship between storms, phytoplankton resurfacing and re-sedimentation.

Can propose oceanographic scientists who could help with logistics on ground and at sea

With TAP airline
Then take an international flight between islands with SATA Airline
OR BOS directly to the Azores via SATA airline
