While attending the AGU/ASLO (American Society of Limnology and Oceanography) Ocean Sciences meeting in New Orleans, La., I fell to contemplating the variety of acronyms that occur in geophysical research. As we all know, a catchy acronym is a n essential ingredient of any large research project. While a good start has been made by ingenious colleagues, much more could be done in this direction. I respectfully submit a list of proposed acronyms for future projects in the ocean sciences. Perhaps members of other sections might like to contribute equivalents in their own fields.
