The largest oceanographic field experiment in WHOI history.

Concentrated Effort

In the largest oceanographic field experiment in WHOI history, 62 moorings, 350 oceanographic sensors, 6 research ships, 100 tons of equipment, airplanes, satellites, undersea gliders, and more than 50 scientists from 12 institutions were focused on a 24- by 31-mile patch of ocean over seven weeks in the summer of 2006. Working about 100 miles east of Atlantic City, N.J., the multidisciplinary research team worked to assemble a detailed picture of how sound waves travel through complex coastal waters.
