One of the highlights of the Summer Student Fellowship program is a day trip on the WHOI research vessel Tioga to gain a little hands-on experience with sampling and navigation equipment. Here, Fellows Helena Pryer and Caterina Brighi enjoy the view as Tioga pulls away from the WHOI dock. (Photo by Jayne Doucette, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
Summer Student Fellows Maya Becker and Jacob Forsyth and instructor Hovey Clifford consult a field guide to identify sediment animals collected during a short cruise on Buzzards Bay aboard the WHOI research vessel Tioga. Clifford is one of four WHOI employees and retirees who join the cruise each summer "to give the students a flavor of what is involved in planning, preparing, and eventually going to sea to obtain samples for research."

When the sampler reaches the seafloor, its jaws close shut to grab a load of sediment. (Photo by Jayne Doucette, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
Jim Doutt, a research associate at WHOI, instructed the Summer Student Fellows in the use of a CTD, which measures temperature, depth, and conductivity (which correlates with salinity) of the water. Visible at right are Niskin bottles, part of a CTD "rosette" used to capture samples of water at various depths. (Photo by Jayne Doucette, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)

Emeritus oceanographer George Hampson showed the Summer Student Fellows how to measure the amount of oxygen in a water sample using the Winkler technique, which was developed more than 100 years ago and which played a crucial role in determining oxygen levels in the Gulf of Mexico following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

Ian Hanley, first mate of WHOI research vessel Tioga, showed Summer Student Fellow Caterina Brighi how to use a sextant to determine the boat's position. (Photo by Jayne Doucette, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
