ROV Jason dives deep

ROV Jason is Woods Hole's state of the art Remotely Operated Vehicle. Supported by the National Science Foundation and equipped with sonars, video and still imaging systems and sampling capabilities, Jason can investigate the deep ocean and seafloor.

A new periodic table classifies droplet motions

Scientists have created a periodic table of droplet motions, inspired in part by parallels between the symmetries of atomic orbitals, which determine elements' positions on the classic periodic table, and the energies that determine droplet shapes

Tomato crops hinge on adaptation and biodiversity

A team of researchers visits a seed bank, the Tomato Genetics Resource Center, where scientists try to preserve the genetic diversity available in wild tomato relatives and make it available for crop breeders

Crops versus wild

This video describes a food chain that extends from consumers, producers, breeders and the wild crop relatives that breeders depend on for crop improvement.

A whale of a ride

Barnacles are sticky little critters that hitch rides on the backs of humpback and gray whales. They hold a wealth of information that is helping scientists better understand how whales might respond to the current changes in Earth's climate

First smartphone app that can hear ear infections in children

With funding from the National Science Foundation's Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE), researchers at the University of Washington have created a new smartphone app that can detect fluid behind the eardrum by simply using a piece of paper
