WHOI chemist Liz Kujawinski (back left) watches as service engineer Rob Harper installs a Fourier-transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometer in the Fye Laboratory. The room-sized mass spectrometer can measure the molecular mass of many compounds simultaneously with very high precision and accuracy. It is used to identify and characterize organic compounds produced and used by marine microbes, and to detect petroleum products or pharmaceuticals in the environment. Kujawinski and Chris Reddy led a group that won a grant from the National Science Foundation for the new equipment. A complementary piece of equipment in this laboratory was provided by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. (Photo by Tom Kleindinst, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
