WHOI's Hovey Clifford (center) showed Melissa Simpson and Oniika Davis Peters from BP how to use a Niskin bottle to take water samples beneath the ocean surface recently. In September, 20 BP employees from around the world involved in environment, safety, and operational risk operations came to WHOI for 12 days for an intensive short course on ocean science. The course was designed to expose members of the oil and gas industry to major themes in oceanographic research with a focus on marine ecosystems and to provide greater appreciation for the environment in which BP's offshore operations are conducted. The course included lectures, seminars, and tours plus a hands-on day of fieldwork on the R/V Tioga in Buzzards Bay. (Photo by Katherine Spencer Joyce, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
