R/V Caryn at WHOI dock.

A different era of oceanography

The research vessel Caryn waits out the winter at a snowy Woods Hole dock in the 1950s.  The vessel made 110 cruises on behalf of WHOI research from 1948-1958. WHOI has owned or operated 18 different regional and global class vessels in its 78 years, with a few dozen coastal boats and small craft contributing to nearshore work as well.
