Cape-Able Partners

April 8, 2015

A new grant from The Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Foundation will help WHOI fund a three-year collaboration with Cape Abilities—a nonprofit organization dedicated to finding good jobs for disabled Cape Cod residents—to assemble instruments used in ocean research, a partnership that has existed since 2009. Cape Abilities member Carol Hudon (left) is shown here assembling a silver chloride electrode, which is used in instruments that measure naturally occurring electric and magnetic fields on the seafloor. The instruments were deployed in 2013 at a subduction zone, where conditions deep beneath the seafloor can trigger earthquakes and tsunamis.(Photo by Tom Kleindinst, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
