Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center's Geology Team is one of three marine teams
that conduct research within the USGS Coastal and Marine Geology
Program. The team is located on WHOI's Quissett Campus. The team
has a staff of about 100, including 24 research scientists and 75 scientific and
administrative support staff. USGS earth scientists explore and
study many aspects of the underwater areas between shorelines and the deep ocean,
off the U.S. East Coast, the Gulf of Mexico, and in parts of the Caribbean and
