Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) scientists are using advanced medical imaging techniques and diagnostic tools to reveal the internal structures of a wide range of marine animals. Most recently they worked on an international collaboration on mollusks: a diverse group of invertebrate sea creatures that includes snails, clams, mussels, squid, and octopuses. The resulting images,…
Decades of research from many WHOI scientists and engineers have culminated in a multifaceted vehicle to explore deep-sea marine life.
Nope, it’s not a bird or a plane. It’s a drone on a scientific mission to restore a river long impaired by dams and to help bring back populations of prized fish that once flourished in it. For more than 300 years, dams on the Coonamessett River in Falmouth, Mass., powered mills and created expanses…
