Eric L. Butler, a chemistry and oceanography instructor at Phillips Academy in Andover, Mass., has been selected as the 1984–85 AGU Congressional Science Fellow. Last week he began his 1-year stint on Capitol Hill AGU's eighth Congressional Science Fellow.

Butler, a member of AGU's Ocean Sciences section, received his Ph.D. from the Graduate School of Oceanography of the University of Rhode Island. While his formal course work focused on chemistry and oceanography, his research has dealt largely with atmospheric chemistry and the measurement and geochemistry of trace organic compounds. He has been associated with the Center for Atmospheric Chemical Studies at the University of Rhode Island since its inception several years ago.
