From the President, Andone Lavery
One of the most rewarding aspects of being President of TOS is overseeing the TOS Honors Program and recognizing the accomplishment of our colleagues. In 2019 we underwent an exciting overhaul of our TOS Honors Program, adding a number of awards and medals. We are now accepting nominations by October 31 for Fellows, the Jerlov Award, and the Wallace Broecker, Walter Munk, and Mary Sears medals. I encourage you to take the time to nominate your colleagues for their exceptional achievements and contributions to ocean sciences. The TOS Honors Programs is only as strong as the nominations we receive from YOU. We look forward to honoring all the new recipients at the next Ocean Sciences Meeting in Hawaii in February 2022.
