William M. Sackett: New Field Fellow



AGU's second Richard Montgomery Field Fellow has begun his 10-month tenure at AGU headquarters in Washington, D.C. William M. Sackett is a graduate research professor in marine science at the University of South Florida (St. Petersburg, Fla.).

After just a few days at AGU, Sackett told Eos that he is now involved with helping to launch AGU's newest journal, Global Biogeochemical Cycles, and to organize sessions for the 1987 AGU Spring Meeting. Although it was too soon to say on which projects he will ultimately concentrate, Sackett said that he “would like to make some solid contributions to advancing AGU's goals.” He added that he is very much looking forward to getting to know the city of Washington during the coming year.
