  • Climate group discussion. Postdoc and students discuss their climate research with Associate Scientist Caroline Ummenhofer (front)
    Climate group discussion. Postdoc and summer research students discuss how the ocean affects the water cycle during the last millennium. Ocean properties from the Indian Ocean based on historic observational data are compared with results from computer simulations. (Photo by Justin Buchli , Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution).
  • WHOI researchers head back to sea after "pause" in research expeditions: WHOI science team members will be onboard the R/V Neil Armstrong for 11 days to service the ocean observation equipment that is part of the National Science Foundation funded Ocean Observatories Initiative.
