Keep it Clean

Benjamin Birner, a 2013 Summer Student Fellow from Jacobs University in Bremen, at work in the Clark Clean Lab on WHOI’s Quissett campus. "Clean labs" are designed to prevent contamination of sensitive samples by airborne particles. Each summer, Fellows work with WHOI scientists on a wide range of oceanographic research projects. Birner worked with geologist Liviu Giosan, who uses pollen grains and other clues buried in river and ocean sediments to investigate historical events such as the flooding of the Black Sea and how climate change affected civilizations in ancient India.
