First Paragraph

The recent Ocean Sciences Meeting in San Diego, California, February 12–16, 1996, co-sponsored by the American Geophysical Union and the American Society of Limnology and Oceanography, had a session of invited and contributed papers on undergraduate and graduate education. An evening session dealt with “Alternative Careers.” These followed by 10 mo a Panel on Education in the Ocean Sciences: “Careers and Curricula” at The Oceanography Society’s Fourth Scientific Meeting, April, 1995 (Sharp, 1995). Two common themes discussed during these meetings (and other gatherings), were 1) Is there an oversupply of PhDs in oceanography? and 2) how can we make more rapid, substantial progress in expanding the opportunities for underrepresented minorities in the ocean sciences?
