Mooring technician Meghan Donohue

Mother on Board

WHOI mooring technician Meghan Donohue changes the rigging on top of a subsurface float, part of the Ocean Observatories Initiative Global Array in the South Atlantic Ocean. In the past, there were few women in oceanography, but that's changing as more women pursue careers as technicians, scientists, researchers, and engineers. Research cruises to remote locations such as this one often can keep Donohue at sea for a month or more. Last year she balanced the challenges of work at sea with becoming a mother for the first time. From all of us at WHOI, we wish mothers at sea a very happy Mother’s Day!
