New study reveals more acid seas could alter early development of Atlantic longfin squid Acidifying oceans could dramatically impact the world’s squid species, according to a new study led by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) researchers and soon to be published in the journal PLOS ONE. Because squid are both ecologically and commercially important, that […]

A new robotic sensor deployed by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) in Gulf of Maine coastal waters may transform the way red tides or harmful algal blooms (HABs) are monitored and managed in New England. The instrument was launched at the end of last month, and a second such system will be deployed later this spring. read more
When Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) marine paleoecologist Marco Coolen was mining through vast amounts of genetic data from the Black Sea sediment record, he was amazed about the variety of past plankton species that left behind their genetic makeup (i.e., the plankton paleome). read more

Sarah Cooley is a Research Associate at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, where she studies the socioeconomic impacts of changes in ocean chemistry. TalkingFish: Could you share a little bit about your background? How did you become involved in marine science? What led you to study ocean acidification in particular? Sarah Cooley: I was a chemistry [...]
An international group of scientists, including researchers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, are working to improve communication about ocean acidification to help the public better understand the pressing global issue. The term “ocean acidification” (OA) describes the changes that occur in the ocean as a result of increased emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) into [...]
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution scientists forced by a court earlier this year to turn over confidential emails to BP about the Deepwater Horizon oil spill are calling for far more legal protections for researchers against special interest assaults. BP won...

The oceans are getting the red-carpet treatment with a new project from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution: HabCam, an optical imaging endeavor that provides researchers with a one-of-a-kind glimpse of the seafloor.
FALMOUTH — What is the acidification of the oceans going to do to the scallop population? That’s the question the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution will try to answer with a $682,000, three-year, federal grant, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced Wednesday. The oceans are absorbing more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and it is [...]
