Employee Portrait of the Week - Jean Whelan

A quote attributed to Jean Whelan that accompanied this picture of her in the recently published case statement for WHOI’s capital campaign said: “ If you think like a geologist, reservoirs are fixed and predictable. But if you think like an oceanographer, you have to ask whether geological processes can happen faster.  We . . . began to consider how much gas was migrating through the system, and whether it could be seeping up into the ocean, refilling the reservoir.” (Photo by Bridget Besaw-Gorman)
