The Laboratory collection features both historical and current images of the James J. Howard Marine Sciences Laboratory facilities, as well as its staff at work, Laboratory Open Houses, and images of the Laboratory's first director, Dr. Lionel A. Walford.
Daniel Wieczorek, a Marine Chemistry Branch Physical Science Technician, readies the “junior scientists” visiting the “Marine Chemistry Investigative Science” activity at the Laboratory 2010 Open House. The junior scientists are outfitted in laboratory coats, safety glasses, and protective gloves to measure the pH of seawater and seawater exposed to high levels of CO2 using probes and meters. The activity gave the young ‘scientists’ an understanding of ocean acidification, one of the Laboratory’s priority research areas and Wieczorek's specialty. Held in conjunction with the Sandy Hook Ocean Fun Day, an annual event jointly sponsored by the New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium and New Jersey Natural Gas, over 1,200 visitors attended the Laboratory's Open House. Visitors toured the Laboratory, viewed exhibits, and got their hands dirty in the touch-tanks and other hands-on activities.
