As summer winds down here in the northern hemisphere, we have several announcements to share about TOS activities taking place over the next few months.

Help Build a Better Oceanography Magazine

On the occasion of the 35th anniversary of the publication of Oceanography, TOS leadership wants to find out what content readers find most useful and how they primarily access the magazine. We encourage all readers, including students, to respond to our eight-question survey which should only take about five minutes to complete. The survey closes tomorrow (September 1, 2022).

TOS Council Self-Nominations

In December, three Council members will complete their terms. We would like to thank Martin Visbeck (Past-President), Galen McKinley (Chemical Oceanography) and Larry Mayer (Applied Technology) for their contributions to TOS. We’re pleased to announce that a Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) Council Position has been added to the committee this year. Following our tradition of making these opportunities available to a wide number of TOS members, we invite members to submit self-nominations for consideration for inclusion on the ballot for the Council positions. Additionally, you are welcome to contact the TOS Executive Director or TOS President with questions.
