BIOS Scientist Honored

In August, the University of Southampton awarded Prof. Nicholas Bates a second, merit-based Doctor of Science (D.Sc.) in recognition of his many contributions to the field of ocean sciences. To earn this honor, a copy of every scientific paper he has authored or contributed to was presented to the University.  The binders filled six feet of shelf space, and took six months for internal and external examiners to review.  Congratulations on this honor!
