Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI)
The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) is the world's largest private, nonprofit ocean research, engineering and education organization. WHOI is dedicated to research and education to advance understanding of the ocean and its interaction with the Earth system, and to communicating this understanding for the benefit of society.
WHOI's Ocean and Climate Change Institute is one of four Ocean Institutes within WHOI established in 2000 to stimulate and sustain innovative, interdisciplinary oceanographic research. The Ocean and Climate Change Institute identifies the climatic effects of changing ocean circulation, develops an ocean-monitoring network to forecast climate changes, examines past records to expand understanding of ocean behavior, studies ocean dynamics that may trigger climate shifts, and evaluates the ocean’s response to the buildup of greenhouse gases.
