History of Marine Science
Web pages under construction
In 2016 the History of Marine Science SIG was re-established and aims to highlight, explore and preserve the UK’s long and illustrious marine science history. Through this activity we will be able to present-day marine science in context.
The Group will work by electronic-correspondence and by holding meetings (perhaps including webinars).
Foci for its activities will include:-
Collecting and publicizing biographies of UK Marine scientists. (including oral histories)
Researching the origins of present-day scientific understanding.
The rescue, documentation and exploitation of historical data that is of value to present day research.
Documenting the histories of major scientific expeditions, projects and experiments.
Documenting the histories of UK research vessels.
Documenting the histories and achievements of laboratories and university departments involved in marine science.
The preservation of important documents, photographs and equipment.
We invite you to register your interest.
Please e-mail John Gould if you would like to join this Group.
It would be useful to know:
Your areas of interest/expertise on history topics
Your affiliation (past and or present) with approximate dates

Ocean Challenge search function
There is a new online search function for all Ocean Challenge issues that allows anyone to easily search for articles on a specific topic. We hope this will be used not just by the marine science community but by educators who would otherwise not have access to such resources.
