Ocean science research has never been more urgent!
- Holds 97% of Earth’s water and is essential to all life;
- Is home to the vast majority of species on our planet;
- Feeds the world by producing 30% of global protein for 3 billion people every day, and
- Remains a resource in peril with human activity affecting the oceans in new and astounding ways.
WHOI research provides the groundwork for understanding the ocean’s future
- Framing high-profile issues with science, where unbiased understanding enables better response;
- Proposing new ways to conserve and protect ocean life, including endangered whales and coral reefs;
- Analyzing climate change and sea level rise; and
- Pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in robotics and other technologies.
