Our Lab in Woods Hole

Photo Gallery

Most of us work in Bigelow Lab, the oldest and first building of WHOI. The cupula on top of the roof gives the building its distinctive and historic look. For its first ten years, the entire Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution resided in Bigelow. The building was named for the first director of WHOI, Henry Bryant Bigelow. Here are some photos which show the building at different ages, angles and seasons.
