Henry Dick

Fine Fellow

Former WHOI Summer Student Fellow and current MIT-WHOI Joint Program graduate student Benjamin Urann (left) and his mentor, WHOI geologist Henry Dick, examine slabs cut from rocks collected during a cruise to the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Dick studies the evolution of Earth's crust at mid-ocean ridges and recently led an effort to begin drilling to the transition zone between the crust and mantle known as the Moho. His "seminal contributions toward understanding abyssal peridotites and their importance for understanding the Earth's upper mantle" led the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) to name Dick a 2016 AAAS Fellow. He will receive the honor during the AAAS annual meeting in Boston later this week. (Photo by Tom Kleindinst, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
