Marine Tech Talk is a show about the Teledyne Marine technologies that are enabling discovery and efficient and safe work practices in our oceans and inland waterways. Hosted by Melissa Rossi, a Marketing Director at Teledyne Marine, Marine Tech Talk features customers and their quest for knowledge, more efficient work environments, safety, environmental conservation, and more. From following North Atlantic Right Whales off the coast of New Brunswick, to advocating and designing a new fishing method that can prevent accidental whale entanglements and mortality, our guests span industries and the globe. Meet commercial fishermen-turned-advocates, marine construction service providers, and researchers and technicians from prestigious universities and government agencies that are all using Teledyne Marine’s technologies to solve some of the toughest challenges on the planet.
Episode 30: The Benefits of “Hands On” Experience Training
In this episode of Marine Tech Talk, we are joined by Brian Bradley, a faculty member of Cape Fear Community College's Marine Technology Program in Wilmington, N.C. Cape Fear Community College employs a range of equipment from Teledyne Marine in their program.
Brian teaches Hydrographic Surveying, Marine Instrumentation, and Marine Data Processing, and he also serves as an “at sea” instructor for three oceanographic training cruises students are required to complete during their course of study.
Episode 29: From Oban to the Arctic, the Benefits of an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle
On this episode of the podcast, we are joined by Dr. John Howe, a Senior Lecturer in Marine Geology at the Scottish Association of Marine Scientists (SAMS). His expertise is in fjord geomorphology and glaciomarine sedimentation. He is the operator of the UK Gavia AUV, Freya, and he has participated in more than 30 cruises to regions including the Arctic, Svalbard, Indian Ocean, Papua New Guinea and the Chilean Patagonia.
Episode 28: Glider Observations in New Zealand’s Shelf Seas
On this episode of the podcast we speak with Dr. Joe O Callahan, a coastal oceanographer with the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA), and Khush Jhugroo, a PhD candidate in Physical Oceanography at the University of Auckland in New Zealand. They discuss the work they are doing in the shelf seas around New Zealand. The team has been examining river washes out to the bays, and understanding the deep eddies in greater Cook Strait using two Slocum autonomous gliders, Betty and Manaya.
Episode 27: Investigating Algal Blooms and Hypoxia in the Great Lakes
In the first episode of the New Year, we are joined by Dr. Aaron Fisk, a Professor at the University of Windsor and Science Director for the Real-time Aquatic Ecosystem Observation Network (RAEON), Katelynn Johnson, Research and Operations Director at RAEON and Cailin Burmaster, a Marine Technician for RAEON. The team is using a Slocum Glider from Teledyne Webb Research to investigate the health of the Great Lakes.
Episode 26: Holiday Greetings from Marine Tech Talk!

Episode 25: Ocean Dynamics in Polar Regions
In this final episode of the Teledyne Marine Photo Contest series, we chat with Jhon Mojica, a polar oceanographer from the Center for Global Sea Level Change at New York University in Abu Dhabi. Jhon submitted two images of a mooring deployment that incorporated a Benthos R2K Acoustic Release. Jhon’s research work focuses on ocean dynamics in polar regions and interactions with ice shelves, characterizing the effects of sea-level rise in coastal cities such as Abu Dhabi.
