Author Ken Able, the director of the field station, explores this past, the current research, and the scientists who have worked here. He documents some of the earliest marine research, including the first scientific studies of New Jersey's oysters once a thriving, booming resource. Today the station is home to wide-ranging studies from measuring microscopic marine life (over a million samples have been carefully analyzed in the last quarter century) to deep-sea remotely-controlled submersibles. Maps, charts, scientific diagrams, and many historic photos of the station itself and of the early researchers at work in the environment add texture to the historical narrative.
