Marine Biological Laboratory / Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Field Trip

  • 10 MBL St Woods Hole, MA, 02543 United States (map)

Spend a day in Woods Hole, a world center for marine, biomedical, and environmental science on the southwestern corner of Cape Cod. Woods Hole’s reputation in these fields may seem out of proportion to its small size, yet the village contains two large private organizations (the Marine Biological Laboratory and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution), two federal facilities (the National Marine Fisheries Service and the U.S. Geological Survey), and many smaller scientific enterprises and labs. Following an overview and introduction to the six major Woods Hole research institutions, participants will break into self-selected groups for the following optional tours and experiences:

  • Vineyard Sound boat trips on the R/V Gemma, MBL’s collecting vessel
  • WHOI Remus Lab and dock tour
  • WHOI exhibit center and deep submergence lab tour
  • WHOI necropsy facility and marine mammal lab tour
  • MBL Marine Resources Center tour
  • Panel discussion of the carbon problem
  • Panel discussion of arctic change and global change
  • National Marine Fisheries Service Aquarium tour

$25, registration required. Lunch will be provided.
