Gift from the Sea

In June, retired WHOI biologist George Hampson (center) joined a group of WHOI Summer Student Fellows on board the research vessel Tioga to teach them basic oceanographic data- and sample-collection techniques. Here he helps Eve Eisemann from Temple University (left) and Brenna McGann from Grove City College sieve seafloor sediment to reveal tiny marine animals living at the bottom of Buzzards Bay. The cruise is a highlight of the program, said Hampson, who retired in 1997 after 37 years with WHOI, but who often returns to campus to instruct young people. "I am giving back for all that I have gotten from this community," he said. (Photo by Jayne Doucette, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
