Life in the sea

Biologist Alfred Redfield in his lab, circa 1955. Redfield joined the WHOI staff as senior biologist in 1931 and was Associate Director from 1942 to 1956. His broad marine research interests ranged from plankton populations to tides—a plaque near the Redfield Laboratory entrance states his philosophy: Life in the sea cannot be understood without understanding the sea itself.
