This facility provides analytical support for the detection of natural and artificial radionuclides in environmental samples. Special emphasis is placed upon those isotopes that are used as tracers of marine process, and are commonly measured by detection of gamma, beta and alpha counting techniques.
The Fourier-Transform Mass Spectrometry facility was established in 2007 with support from the National Science Foundation and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. It provides services for marine and terrestrial biogeochemists of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and the greater scientific community whose sample analyses require the ultrahigh resolution and mass accuracy of FT-ICR mass spectrometry.
A team of innovative and professional designers, illustrators, photographers, and technicians who help communicate ocean-related science, engineering, and education.
The intent of establishing the MISO Facility is to provide an adequate pool of commonly used and essential digital imaging equipment and associated sensors and acoustic transponders for various large-scale experiments and programs in the ocean sciences.
The National Ocean Sciences Accelerator Mass Spectrometry Facility (NOSAMS) was established with support from the National Science Foundation in 1989 at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. NOSAMS provides analyses of 14C at natural abundance levels to the ocean sciences research community.
The NENIMF is one of only two National Ion Microprobe Facilities supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF) in the United States of America. It is charged with providing first class service, scientific expertise and educational outreach activities to the research community in the U.S. and beyond.
The Nutrient Analytical Facility utilizes several state of the art methods and instruments for quantifying bio-element concentrations in environmental samples.
The Organic Mass Spectrometry Facility provides specialized, state-of-the-art analytical services using instruments which would be prohibitively expensive for any single investigator to develop, operate and maintain. This facility primarily serves members of the WHOI Department of Marine Chemistry and Geochemistry, but is available to all investigators at the Institution and, as time and resources permit, to other researchers outside of the Woods Hole community.
The Plasma Mass Spectrometry (or ICP) Facility is a laboratory for trace metal and isotope ratio measurements. It serves the marine and geochemists of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and the greater academic community.
