John Knauss: 50 Years of Service to Oceanography

Margaret Leinen
First Paragraph

All of those whose lives and careers have been touched by John Knauss’ leadership in marine science, his vision of integrated and multidisciplinary approaches to marine problems, and his statesman-like dignity and humanity join me in congratulating him on 50 years of distinguished contributions to oceanography. We are delighted that Oceanography has taken this opportunity to reflect on the many ways in which John has led our field and in which he has served as an example for our own careers. In my remarks I would like to reflect on some of the wonderful stories associated with this legend of oceanography.
