Programs & Projects
WHOI contributes to or directly manages to a range of community-wide scientific efforts that help advance ocean research both nationally and internationally.
AVAST supports WHOI's vision for innovation in ocean technology, science, and education by providing the resources to create and pursue cutting-edge projects and programs.
CINAR is a NOAA-supported consortium of five partner institutions that together span the region and provide the required breadth, depth and quality of scientific expertise, instrumentation, models, and facilities to address NOAA needs.
A summer program that promotes an exchange of ideas among the many distinct fields that share a common interest in the nonlinear dynamics of rotating, stratified fluids
WHOI’s HADEX program is carrying out a comprehensive research, exploration, and technological development agenda to study the deepest parts of Earth’s ocean in order to better understand life on our planet and to set the stage for the exploration of oceans beyond Earth.
A project to explore one of our planet’s hidden frontiers—the ocean twilight zone, a vast, globe-spanning, and dimly lit region between about 200 and 1,000 meters beneath the ocean’s surface.
OCIA is a first-of-its-kind consortium bringing together industry, academia, and philanthropy. Focused on advancing knowledge of the ocean’s critical role as a defense against a warming planet, OCIA is developing and accelerating new climate change solutions.
Based at WHOI, Woods Hole Seagrant is part of a NOAA network of 32 programs that support research, education, and extension projects that encourage environmental stewardship, long-term economic development, and responsible use of the nation's coastal and ocean resources.
