About the ocean instruments Web site
The site features text and background information written and/or edited by experts in ocean science and engineering, in addition to links to glossaries and multimedia technologies including video streaming, audio packages, and searchable databases. The site is updated as new information arrives from contributing ocean scientists and engineers.

The site is hosted by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), a private, non-profit research and higher education organization based on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Contributors to the site include scientists and engineers from universities as well as public and private ocean research institutions. We do not advertise for manufacturers or promote the use of individual ocean instruments. This effort was made possible by a grant from the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations for planning and implementation. » View complete list of contributors
