Ingenuity and Innovation

Research associates George Tupper (left) and Marshall Swartz check a CTD rosette, which measures the salinity and temperature of seawater at various depths, as Swartz's dog Little Bear takes a break. Both men have made major contributions to WHOI’s exploration of the oceans during their long careers. A modem designed by Swartz  makes it possible to view photos taken at the seafloor in real time on a ship at the surface. Tupper recently reflected on how the "WHOI way of doing things" has contributed to many technical innovations such as this. (Photo by Tom Kleindinst, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
