The number of female physical oceanographers holding Ph.D's will grow by at least 15% this year when three female oceanography graduate students at Florida State University (FSU) receive their doctorates, according to James J. O'Brien, FSU professor of meteorology and oceanography and editor of the Oceans section of the Journal of Geophysical Research. The students (see Figure 1), Ruth Preller, Germana Peggion, and Sirpa Hakkinen, have all completed requirements for the doctorate degree.
