Gov. Patrick at WHOI

Governor Patrick Visits WHOI

Last Fall, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick visited WHOI for the first time, touring several labs and learning about the Institution's robotic vehicle development and ocean observing programs. Here WHOI Associate Scientist Richard Camilli describes his work on TETHYS, a submarine mass spectrometer that can measure carbon dioxide concentrations in the ocean to help provide a better understanding of climate change. In his demonstration, Cahilli shows how TETHYS measures the increasing carbon dioxide concentration in a glass of water as the people in the room breathe.  TETHYS was also used to map and characterize the underwater hydrocarbon plume from the Deepwater Horizon spill.
