The ocean covers more than 70 percent of Earth, yet it is the least understood ecosystem on the planet -- and it remains largely unexplored. Scientists at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), a world leader in the field of oceanography, have been probing the mysteries of the oceans for more than 65 years. Welcome to our Web site!

The WHOI Information Office has organized general information, in the form of frequently asked questions on the left side of this page, that will introduce you to our institution and, we hope, answer many of your own questions. Links to other portions of WHOI's Web site will answer many more. If you have questions that remain unanswered after you browse our materials, please contact us:
