Delivered in June 2014, the R/V Joanne Daiber significantly enhances the University’s capacity to support scientific research, particularly with unmanned vehicles and other state of the art sensor technology. The vessel also provides an outstanding work platform and experiential classroom for students engaged in coastal research.
The R/V Joanne Daiber is a 46-foot research vessel designed to function in a range of habitats from the bay estuaries to the shelf break. It is named in honor of the late Joanne Daiber, for the devotion she had for the University of Delaware Marine Program, and the professional sacrifices she made along the way. The vessel is used for coastal research as well as undergraduate and graduate instruction.
