Oceanus, the oceanography magazine produced by WHOI, now has an online version at https://www.whoi.edu/oceanus/. Initial articles feature deep ocean exploration, such as the evolutionary puzzle of seafloor life, life beneath the sea floor, and undersea earthquakes. Articles on current research in the coastal ocean, including the debate over wind farms, are being added regularly, and future articles will focus on ocean life, from marine mammals to genetics. The online version includes an email update function, which emails links to new articles when they are posted, printer-friendly versions of each article, and an “e-mail this to a friend” function. For visually impaired viewers, there is a button to enlarge the screen display. Oceanus will cover the work of the Institution’s Ocean Institutes this year, then branch out to cover WHOI science more broadly. Print issues of the magazine will also be available later this year.
