Wading into Work

Wading into Work

"Fieldwork" sometimes means get-into-the-water-work. Here, WHOI researchers Bruce Lancaster, Jim Weinberg, and Dale Leavitt (left to right) stand on tidal flats of Little Buttermilk Bay in Bourne, Mass., collecting soft shell clams in about 1991. The three pulled up sediment cores to find small, young clams to study for a disease similar to leukemia in mammals. They were working with biologist Judy McDowell, in a project funded by the Environmental Protection Agency and Woods Hole Sea Grant. (Photo by Tom Kleindinst, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
