THE OCEANOGRAPHY CLASSROOM • Diverse Career Possibilities and a Broad Oceanography Curriculum

Jonathan H. Sharp
First Paragraph

At the Fourth Scientific Meeting of TOS last April, there was a panel discussion titled, “Education in Ocean Sciences: Careers and Curricula”. It was a stimulating and exciting forum and has led to this new regular column in Oceanography. Although curriculum has been debated in oceanographic institutions, a logical twist at the TOS meeting was to link the curriculum discussion with one on careers and then to open the scope of the career discussion.
