Fab Four

An aerial view of the WHOI dock circa 1960 shows the Institution's four research vessels at the time: (from left) Aries, Atlantis, Crawford, and Bear. Unlike many other ocean science institutions, WHOI not only studies the seas; scientists, engineers, and sailors have been working together for 77 years to operate the ships and build the vehicles and instruments to observe the environment.
