Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution

Established in 1930, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is one of the world's most well-regarded research institutions, devoted to the mission of developing a fundamental understanding of the processes and characteristics that govern how the oceans work and how they interact with the earth as a whole. From the site's main page, visitors can develop a general understanding of the Institution's activities by looking through the information provided about their research departments (e.g., biology and marine chemistry); their research groups; and their highly-regarded ocean institutes, which include the Deep Ocean Exploration Institute and the Ocean Life Institute. Students and educators will want to make sure and visit the Dive and Discover section of the site, which allows users to "travel" on the bottom of a number of oceans in a miniature submarine. Divided into six sections, the trip contains a host of information for people who are interested in learning about the variety of life in the Pacific Ocean and about different geological processes, like plate tectonics.
