Undeterred by a snowstorm, MIT/WHOI Joint Program student Michael Holcomb (red hood), research assistant Byron Pedler, and assistant scientist Ben Van Mooy (kneeling) recover experimental plates that had been suspended underwater at the WHOI pier. Van Mooy and colleagues are working on an applied research project (funded by the U.S. Navy) to develop paints and materials that deter biofouling by marine bacteria.
