As you can see from the masthead, we have a new editor, Chuck Nittrouer, from the Marine Sciences Research Center at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. Chuck has been the Associate Editor for geology/geophysics and now moves to take on full responsibility for the Magazine. We all look forward to his tenure and leadership in these formative years of the Society. Please feel free to write or call him with your suggestions and ideas about the content or style of the Magazine. One proposal that Chuck will be implementing is the appointment of Associate Editors from outside the U.S. in order to broaden the representation of the international community. As I have emphasized in previous columns, The Oceanography Society can only succeed in its goal of providing communication among oceanographers if it is fully international. The new Associate Editors will help us do that.
