Geology professor emeritus Stanley R. Riggs talks about the history of coastal research at ECU and the school’s new research vessel named for him, the R/V Stanley R. Riggs. The twin-engine boat is a 34-foot Munson PackCat that includes a bow ramp for beach landings and can carry more than 10 people. When not in use, the R/V Riggs is docked near the N.C. Estuarium in Washington. (Video by Cliff Hollis)
