  • Tue, 11 Jan 2022 17:39:47 +0000: WHOI shares details on microplastic detection project - News Releases – Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
    A project led by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution’s Chemical Sensors Lab is moving researchers closer to an in-field microplastics sensor that measures the amount of plastic particles in water.
  • Tue, 11 Jan 2022 14:48:24 +0000: Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution selected as finalist for Governors Island Climate Solutions Center - News Releases – Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
    Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI, a global leader in ocean research and exploration, is partnering with two teams selected as finalists in the development of the new Governors Island Climate Solutions Center in New York City. The announcement was recently made by former New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and The Trust for Governors Island.
  • Tue, 04 Jan 2022 14:39:31 +0000: Research suggests giant kelp has different factors that bear on its growth dynamics - News Releases – Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
    The macroalga giant kelp, which is an iconic and important ecosystem-structuring species found off the coast of California and many other coastlines, can grow 100-feet long within 1-2 years. Now, researchers using novel remote sensing observations have found that different factors may bear on the spatial growth dynamics of the Macrocystis pyrifera kelp, which is the largest species of algae in the world.

    WHOI and partners join together to launch approximately 100 new Argo floats across the Atlantic Ocean to collect data that supports ocean, weather and climate research and prediction
  • Fri, 10 Dec 2021 19:59:02 +0000: Tropical fish…up north? How ocean physics play a role in altering water temperature and salinity - News Releases – Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
    A study led by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution scientists is explaining why warm and salty water along with warm water fish species, such as the deep-sea dwelling Gulf Stream flounder and Black Sea bass, were found far inshore in New England in the middle of winter 2017. How did this happen? Researchers say it is due to an intrusion of offshore water from the open ocean onto the Northeast U.S. Shelf, caused by eddies (a circular current of water) and wind.
