In 2013, a team from the Oceanographic Systems Lab at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution took a specially equipped REMUS "SharkCam" underwater vehicle to Guadalupe Island in Mexico to film great white sharks in the wild. The captured more than they bargained for.
The Woods Hole Coeanographic Institute is one of the finest research facilities in the world. Partnering with government agencies, academic institutions, non-government agencies and private companies, Woods Hole has been at the forefront of ground breaking research and development for nearly a century. This video is look at their storied history on the You Tube Channel for the book, Space and Ocean Exploration: The Alternative to the Military-Industrial Complex by Danny Quintana. The website for the book features all kinds of information about places like Woods Hole, such as Scripps Oceanographic Institute, and all kinds of material on space and ocean exploration and discovery. http://www.SpaceOceanExploration.com
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution scrubs their Fukushima Cesium radiation contamination data. The test results from 2011 and 2012 seem to be gone, and some of their 2013-2014 data seems to be missing. Could it be tied to the arrest of anti-nuclear activist Dana Durnford?
Part TWO: Scientists from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, USA on the research vessel R/V Oceanus undertake a three week cruise to study health and function of plankton in the western North Atlantic. The final installment in a 3 part series documenting the cruise, the research, and the scientists by ScienceMedia.nl from The Netherlands.

The Hannibal Bank Seamount, 20 km west of Coiba Island, Panama, is an ideal natural laboratory to explore the processes that determine both bottom and water-column ecological hotspots. Internationally recognized for its abundant fish populations, this huge undersea mountain is a popular destination for sports fishermen; yet like most seamounts, the mechanisms that produce its biological richness are poorly known. Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution's goal of this expedition was to uncover how ecological patterns in bottom faunal zonation, water-column fish aggregation, and elevated biodiversity are determined. By collecting samples, extracting DNA to identify species, and researching how the location of marine life corresponds to environmental factors such as temperature, salinity, and cu...
