On the Environment and Unity in Marine Research
Today, we are all environmentalists, or at least very conscious of the environment, although it seems relatively few years ago that this was far from the case, and yet a while before that it wasExpand
Alexander Agassiz (1835-1910) and the Financial Support of Oceanography in the United States
Roy’s observation (1979) that “historians of science record that great science is built around key individuals, small groups, or a special ‘bunch of people,’ in Lewis Thomas’ felicitous phrase, notExpand
