Seafloor Samples

Summer Student Fellow Benjamin Urann (left) and his mentor, geologist Henry Dick, examine slabs cut from igneous rocks collected during a cruise to the Mid-Atlantic Ridge aboard research vessel Knorr. Each summer, Fellows work with WHOI scientists on a wide range of oceanographic research projects. Dick studies the evolution of crust at mid-ocean ridges and other aspects of seafloor geology. Urann is a student at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. (Photo by Tom Kleindinst, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
