WHOI Associates

WHOI Associates help make ocean science research possible. Your support of $100 ensures some of the best minds in marine science and engineering can continue to work together on creative solutions that help policymakers and resource managers better understand:

  • the ocean’s role in climate
  • threats to healthy fisheries
  • the global impact of increasingly ice-free Arctic regions
  • how technologies that facilitate deep ocean exploration can serve in times of human and ocean crises
