Following is logistical information to start your planning for the DOEI Tsunami Workshop here in Woods Hole October 30 - 31, 2006. The meeting will be held in room 507 in the ClarkBuilding on the Quissett Campus of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution starting at 9:00 am on Monday, October 30 and ending at 12:00 p.m. on October 31. A Morss Colloquium titled “Integration of Ocean Science and Technology into Natural Hazard Mitigation Programs” will follow the workshop and will be held in the Lillie Auditorium, WoodsHoleVillage, starting at 1 p.m.

Poster abstracts are due to Christina Cueller (
ccuellar@whoi.edu) by October 6th.  Most of the poster boards available for the meeting allow a 3´W x 4´H poster. There is also limited space for larger posters on the walls.


Securing hotel rooms will be at your discretion but we do recommend the following hotels where WHOI has negotiated a reduced rate. The below facilities will hold rooms until October 1st for workshop participants.  To avail of the special rates please mention that you are with WHOI's "Tsunami Workshop".

Inn on the Square, Falmouth: http://www.innonthesquare.com/
Our rate: $66 plus 9.7% room tax per night. This is the Inn to choose if you want to travel by bus from Logan Airport, Boston, as it is only a few minutes walk from the Falmouth Bus Depot.

Coonamessett Inn,

A transport shuttle will be arranged to pick guests up each morning and take them to workshop venue and return them to the above inns in the evenings. We will also work on carpools to get everyone to and from the workshop.

Both Boston's Logan Airport and Rrovidence's TF Green Airport are about equal distance from WHOI.  Logan Airport is more convenient with direct bus service to Falmouth and Woods Hole.  The bus from Logan airport http://bonanzabus.com/schedules.shtml has a stop very close to the Inn on the Square. (Put in Logan Airport and Falmouth on their web site to get the correct schedule.) The Coonamessett Inn and Holiday Inn would require a cab from the bus station.

Driving directions to Falmouth from Logan Airport, Boston and TF Green Airport, Providence, Rhode Island.
