Down to the Sea for Science: 75 Years of Ocean Research, Education, and Exploration at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution

Reviewed by Charles H. Greene | Ocean Resources and Ecosystems Program, Department of Earth & Atmospheric Sciences, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA

First Paragraph

Since its beginning, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) has been the quintessential American oceanographic research institution. Although WHOI was not the oldest American institution dedicated to ocean research, not even the most senior within the town of Woods Hole, its history during the past century has been one of constantly breaking new ground and setting new trends for the world’s ocean research community. What is it that set this groundbreaking and trendsetting institution apart from the other oceanographic research institutions that came into existence during the past century? The answer to this question can be found in Vicky Cullen’s richly illustrated history of WHOI entitled Down to the Sea for Science.
