First Paragraph

It’s June, when my brain starts thinking of ocean temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit rather than degrees Celsius. Clearly, I am readying for ocean swims. In anticipation of your summer vacation and mine, I have asked a handful of my (favorite) fellow oceanographers to name their favorite beaches and beach reads. Essentially, I have compiled a top-ten list of beaches and books for oceanographers. You will see that some oceanographers can’t get enough of science, even at the beach; some are looking for total escape, some for culture, others for adventure; and at least one oceanographer reads papers that will give him a good beach sleep! Who knew?
