THE OCEANOGRAPHY CLASSROOM • Undergraduate Oceanography Education in a Global World

Matthias Tomczak
First Paragraph

When I joined The Oceanography Society in its first year I did so because the society promised an international outlook on all issues of marine science. As it turned out, our society has struggled to keep that promise; it has been more successful in some areas (particularly with conferences) than in others. But I must confess that when I looked at recent issues of our magazine I felt disappointment about the regional imbalance of articles and contributions.
