Studying moving fluids

Physical oceanographer John Whitehead (far right) showed Russian oceanographers M. A. Bogdanov and B. B. Popov around his laboratory during a tour of WHOI in 1973, and explained an experiment to study fluids rotating over bottom topography that was set up in the lab. Whitehead continues working on problems of fluid motion in the WHOI Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, all the while considering it "totally fun."
