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

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. They captured more than they bargained for.
The deep-diving submersible Alvin takes scientists into the depths of the ocean to give them a first-person, up-close look at the things that happen there and the things that live there. After its 2014 upgrade, the sub (and its support team) is even more capable and ready to explore and to spur the imagination of a new generation of deep-sea scientists and engineers.
For three months in the spring and summer of 2012, MIT/WHOI Joint Program graduate student Ben Linhoff and University of Edinburgh graduate student Andrew Tedstone camped at the foot of Leverett Glacier in western Greenland. Their goal was to study the melt processes that contribute to the movement of the glacier. Their stay also happened coincided with record heat for that part of Greenland. As a result, they were able to witness and document one of the most active melt seasons ever seen. Read more about Ben's experiences in Greenland on his Scientific American blog at http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/expeditions/tag/following-the-ice/.

What they are and why they are important.
This is a custom built Y6 we just finished for www.WHOI.EDU . It is from the Phoenix Flight Gear Transporter Series. At the end we activated Return To Home but the memory card ran out of space. Wind was about 25mph and it was freezing outside and we had to get it shipped the day we filmed so we did not have time to shoot another video. http://www.rc-drones.com/Phoenix-Flight-Gear_c_123.html

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) is the largest independent oceanographic research institution in the United States. Using Blackbaud’s integrated fundraising solutions—Luminate Online™, TeamRaiser®, and Raiser’s Edge™—the institute is able to empower supporters to raise funds on its behalf while maintaining brand consistency and control of the online fundraising experience.
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?
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution's Ken Buesseler EXPECTS THE PUBLIC TO PAY FOR RADIATION OCEAN TESTING THAT HE WILL UNDOUBTEDLY THROW OUT WITH THE BATH WATER AND MAKE UP HIS OWN NUMBERS SINCE NO US GOVERNMENT AGENCY IS RESPONSIBLE FOR PROTECTING IT'S CITIZENS OR OCEAN LIFE FROM FUKUSHIMA FALLOUT? YET WOODS HOLE IS FUNDED BY SEVERAL US GOVERNMENTAL AGENCIES TO STUDY RADIOLOGICAL IMPACTS ON THE US LAND, SEA AND AIR! The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution has launched a new citizen website to pay the cost of testing Pacific Ocean water for levels of radioactivity. The idea is to help the public keep a close eye on a plume of water containing radionuclides, or radioactive elements, from the Fukushima Dai-ichi power plant in Japan, WHOI senior scientist Ken Buesseler said during a telec...

During our trip to Cape Cod I took my Fiancée on the beautiful Falmouth bike trail for some swimming and a nice ride through Woods Hole, Falmouth, to the Oceanographic Institute (Aquarium) and then met with my family for a nice boat ride into the sunset with the dolphins. Was a great time, we hope you enjoy!

All across the world, 1998 will be celebrated as the international year of the oceans. There is one nonprofit organization recognized globally as a leader in understanding the earth's inner space. It is the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI). In a dramatic and exhilarating hour-long special, The Visionaries set out to discover what it is about this institution that sets it apart from other oceanographic research facilities. The episode opens in Woods Hole with a revealing look at the unique culture that makes it possible for mechanics to work alongside the top scientists in the world to invent the instruments that unlock the mysteries of the sea.

On June 15, 2013, James Cameron brought his submersible DEEPSEA CHALLENGER to the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution on Cape Cod. In 2012, Cameron used the sub to make the deepest solo dive on record--all the way to the deepest spot in the ocean, Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench. One year later, Cameron donated the sub to WHOI so that engineers here could study the technological breakthroughs he made in designing DEEPSEA CHALLENGER and apply them to future generations of manned and robotic underwater vehicles. At the event marking the formal handover of the sub to WHOI, Cameron took questions from the audience gathered on the dock.

When Dudley Foster retired from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) in 2012, he had become a legend. His career at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution had spanned the several crucial decades of the Alvin's remarkable development, more than 500 Alvin dives, and the many new discoveries in marine science due to the manned submersible. Mr. Foster began as an engineer in the early days of the Alvin at Woods Hole, and moved on to positions of pilot for the submersible, then expedition leader, then management for the WHOI Alvin expeditions. His experience and expertise were indispensable to the many technical developments associated with the Alvin. The iconic wooden cutout of Dudley beside a huge deep-sea "black smoker" vent is a favorite among scientists and colleagues at WHOI; it was...
