The second meeting of The Oceanography Society (TOS) was held in St. Petersburg this past spring. The invited talks were presented in the elegant Mahaffey Theater of the Bayfront Center and the posters and exhibits were located in the St. Petersburg Hilton. Evening receptions were hosted at the University of South Florida Marine Science Complex and the Columbia Restaurant, both on the waterfront. One of the unique features of the venue was the spring-training baseball games (St. Louis Cardinals) taking place adjacent to the meeting sites. Local support was strong and was responsible for much of the meeting’s success.
