Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center in the Field

Science Center Objects

In the Field; Land, Sea, and Air

Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center scientists and staff study coastal and ocean resources and processes from the land, sea, and air, to shorelines and estuaries to the continental shelf, deep sea, lake floor, river bottoms and shallow subsurfaces environments.

 We have implemented new safety and fieldwork processes to maintain social distancing to ensure the safety of our employees and communities while following guidance from federal, state and local authorities.
