2011 Summer Research Institute group pictureThe Center held its second annual Summer Research Institute, June 6 to July 29, 2011, at the Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey. 

Student Participants

Twenty-one students (8 graduate-level and 13 undergraduate) representing eight universities were admitted into the eight-week intensive summer research program. 

The students were organized into two research teams: The Sensor Technology Applications in Port Security (STAPS) Team and The Consequence Assessment and Management (CAM) Team. Working closely with their faculty mentors the students were given the collective challenge of utilizing sensor technologies and plume modeling forecasts to assess the potential impacts of a radiological dispersion and oil spill in the New York Harbor.
