A new dawn

sunrise at quissett campus

A February 2010 sunrise illuminates the entrance to the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) Quissett campus. WHOI received funding earlier this year for a new addition to the campus — the Laboratory for Ocean Sensors and Observing Systems. Construction is expected to start Aug. 1 and be completed by summer 2012. The lab will provide essential space for several large projects, including the Ocean Observatories Initiative, the Martha’s Vineyard Coastal Observatory, and the WHOI Ocean Bottom Seismometer Instrument Pool.
