Oceanus explores the oceans in depth, highlighting the
research and researchers at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in
news, features, and interviews written by magazine staff, with
photographs and illustrations. Each issues covers a wide spectrum of
oceanography, spanning coastal research, marine life, deep-ocean
exploration, and the ocean's role in climate, as well as ocean
technology and policy.
Oceanus was first published in 1952 as a 16-page typewritten document to provide "a worthwhile reference to modern oceanographic exploration ... that is neither too technical nor too popular." That concise philosophy still remains, even though the mission of the magazine has evolved over the years. Today, the Internet offers more timely access to information, and our scope has broadened to convey the adventure of ocean exploration, the global and collaborative nature of ocean research, and the importance of understanding the key feature that makes our planet unique and habitable.
