Notice: "Oceans Beyond Earth" postponed
As we share in the horror and grief of the current events roiling our communities, WHOI is postponing the season finale of our Ocean Encounters series, “Oceans Beyond Earth.” Although the ocean is, and will remain, the focus of our research, we feel that now is not the time for this event and will work to reschedule it at a more appropriate time and to organize it in a more diverse and inclusive manner that better reflects the diversity of our nation.
