The R/V Neil Armstrong is scheduled to arrive at WHOI in 2016. It will continue WHOI's proud tradition of seagoing oceanography that is the driving force behind the Institution's leadership in ocean science and engineering.
Join fellow Associates and WHOI scientists on expeditions exploring Southeast Asia and Antarctica in 2016.
With funding from the WHOI Ocean Life Institute, the WHOI Access to the Sea program, the National Science Foundation and others, WHOI biologist Stephanie Jenouvrier authored a study that links disappearing sea ice to the declining emperor penguin population in Antarctica.
Grants totaling $5.2 million from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation will help WHOI scientists shed new light on the world of microbes.
The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is a world leader in ocean science because its people share a common set of goals: to interpret the past and understand the present; to invent the technology that enables exploration of the unknown; to inform ocean policy and encourage conservation; to take science to application; and to educate for the future.
Private philanthropy to WHOI has paved the way for discovery since our founding in 1930. Gifts to the Oceanographic make it possible for our scientists, engineers and students to:
That entrepreneurial spirit lives on today, thanks to the investment our donors continue to make in WHOI. Private support for WHOI provides the seed money for high-risk, high-reward projects. Every gift advances scientific discovery by allowing our talented researchers to find creative solutions to the world's most difficult problems. Every gift also has the potential to leverage exponentially greater federal support. Please make a gift today.
