President's Report

Arnold L. Gordon
First Paragraph

In March 1992 I became the second president of The Oceanography Society (TOS), a John Adams to Jim Baker’s George Washington. Jim Baker has done a fantastic job getting TOS started. I’m pleased that TOS will continue to have his support and experience as its first Past-President. TOS is providing service to the community with its magazine, with its biennial and special-focus meetings, establishment of recognition awards, and an “electronic-mail” Newsletter to begin in 1993. TOS is still a fledgling organization searching for ways to meet the needs of ocean scientists. We are always open to suggestions of how TOS could better serve, and we particularly appreciate offers to help TOS develop new activities and improve current ones.
