Facilities | Newark & Lewes, DE USA
The Air-Sea Interaction Lab main facility is the Air-Sea-Current Flume in Cape Henlopen State Park. The ASI Lab is conviently located near the School of Marine Science and Policy's Hugh R. Sharp Campus in Lewes, DE.

The tank overall length is 42 m with a working section 37 m long. It is 1m wide and 1.2 m high. Water depth is generally kept at 0.75 m to allow sufficient air space above the surface. The tank is equipped with a programmable wave maker, and a wind tunnel capable of up to 17m/s wind speed.. Air temperature and water temperature are also independently controllable and can be set from 5 to 40 degrees Celsius. Currents in the tank can be generated using a recirculating pump or by tilting the tank (up to 1.1 degrees). An artificial beach is placed at the end of the tank to dissipate wave energy and eliminate wave reflection.

The Air-Sea Interaction Lab has a facility in Robinson Hall on the University of Delaware's main campus in Newark, DE. Robinson Hall also houses the administrative components of the College of Earth, Ocean and Enviroment, Physical Ocean Science and Engineering program, and Delaware Sea Grant College Program. In addition, the Center for Remote Sensing and the Gerard J. Mangone Center for Marine Policy are located in Robinson Hall.
