WHOI Resources


The National Ocean Sciences Accelerator Mass Spectrometry Facility provides analyses of 14C at natural abundance levels to the ocean sciences research community.


The Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office works with investigators to publish data from research projects funded by the Biological and Chemical Oceanography Sections and the Office of Polar Programs Antarctic Organisms & Ecosystems Program at the U.S. National Science Foundation.

Coastal Groundwater Geochemistry Group

Working to understand the impact of submarine groundwater discharge on chemical cycles in coastal ocean systems, especially the chemical cycles of naturally occurring radioisotopes (e.g. radium, radon), trace metals (e.g. barium, uranium), and nutrients (e.g. nitrate, phosphate).

Cafe Thorium Radioanalytical Facility

Analytical support for the detection of natural and man-made radionuclides in environmental samples.

2011 Sample Data

CTD, bottle, and event log from R/V KOK 2011 cruise available on WHOI's Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO). Also available here.

Plasma Mass Spectrometry Facility

Trace metal and isotope ratio measurements.

Northeast National Ion Microprobe Facility

Measuring the abundances of diverse trace elements and stable and radiogenic isotopes at micron scales.
