MIT-WHOI Joint Program

Heave Ho!

Kurt Polzin (center, in white shirt and no cap) pulls his weight on the Sea Education Association's SSV Westward in 1990, during one of the first MIT-WHOI Joint Program "new student" summer cruises. The Joint Program (JP) is one of the premier marine science programs in the world, and today the Jake Peirson Summer Cruise is a tradition for all incoming JP students. During the weeklong adventure, students learn hands-on oceanography and seamanship. Polzin, now an associate scientist in Physical Oceanography, is one JP alumnus in this photo; can anyone identify the others? (Photo by Tom Kleindinst, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
