In Memoriam: Professor William Carey

The OES has recently lost a vibrant and highly contributive member in the passing of Professor William Carey. Professor Carey is a recipient of the Society’s Distinguished Technical Achievement Award. He served as Editor in Chief of the IEEE Journal of Oceanic Engineering (2011-2012), having served previously in that capacity (1992-1998). He resigned from his Editorship on July 2, 2012, for health reasons, but continued to handle manuscripts in his care until his passing 9 days later. OES President Jerry Carroll has appointed Jim Lynch as interim Editor in Chief.

A memorial service will take place on Sunday, July 22 at 1 p.m. at All Souls Unitarian Universalist Congregation Church, 19 Jay Street, New London, Connecticut. Those who wish to offer condolences can address their thoughts to Carey’s wife, Susanne Colten-Carey, 79 Whippoorwill Road, Old Lyme, CT 06371-1440.

OCEANS 2012’s theme, Harnessing the Power of the Ocean, has as its foundation a conceptual National Ocean Enterprise and its seven societal benefits as identified by the National Ocean Partnership Program’s legislation in 1999, followed by President’s Bush’s Ocean Action Plan and President Obama’s Ocean Science Policy. The seven societal benefits are: Improving predictions of climate change and weather, their effects on coastal communities and the nation:
Improving the safety and efficiency of marine operations
