I can take no credit for the beautiful photographs
that illustrate these pages. Except where explicitly credited on the
page in which it appears, each image comes from either of two sources.
Photographs of deep-sea hydrothermal vents, submersibles,
and surface vessels are from the archives of our sister institution,
the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
Photographs of life and landforms on coral reefs are
from the online gallery
of Belize reef photographs maintained by AmbergrisCaye.com. Some, but
not all, are attributed to the photographer on the gallery pages.
This site is meant as an educational resource for
undergraduate students at MIT taking 12.000 - Solving Complex Problems.
Most copyright owners do not mind the non-profit use of their photographs
on an educational website. If you happen to be cruising by and see one
of your photographs on this site and would like it removed, please contact
Kip Hodges and your wishes will be honored.
