Women in Oceanography : a web site for students, teachers, scientists, and the general public
MetadataShow full item record
In 1999 as the millennium was drawing to a close, we decided that the time was right to introduce a new type of web site highlighting the contributions that women are making to marine science. We envisioned a web site where women considering careers in oceanography could read about the experiences of successful women and learn from their choices; that would convey the excitement of groundbreaking research in oceanography and serve as a resource for teachers, scientists, and the general public; and that would celebrate a group of remarkable women and bring a human face to those working in marine science.
