In 1981, the Center for the Analysis of Marine Systems (CAMS) was established at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. An international research center, CAMS was created as an interdisciplinary “think tank” to meet several needs of modern oceanography – the need for more theoretical studies and numerical modeling; for cross-disciplinary collaboration; and for a haven that would give new ideas, too risky or too interdisciplinary for traditional funding agencies, a chance to take root. It was located on the second floor of Fenno House and supported by private sources.
