Available on loan from the National Sea Grant Library or download PDF file (4MB) or visit web site based on this publication is available at http://www.marinecareers.net
Adams, S. and T.I. Crago
32 pp., 2000 WHOI-E-00-001;
Students thinking about careers in the marine sciences often picture themselves working with marine mammals. Within the marine science fields, however, very few scientists specialize in this area. Today's marine scientists pursue a great variety of wide-ranging careers, using the latest in technology to address the problems and issues that face our marine resources. Marine Science Careers is a guide to the probabilities for this field for today and the years to come. The guide focuses on four major career areas--marine biology, oceanography, ocean engineering, and closely related fields--as well as on careers that involve both the oceans and the Great Lakes. It is intended for high school students, but it will also be of interest to college undergraduates, middle school students, and the parents, teachers, and guidance counselors who will be helping them plan their futures.

WHOI Teacher Packet
Helpful to educators.
WHOI-E-96-002
WHOI is a private, non-profit research facility dedicated to expanding the frontiers of knowledge about the marine world. Most of the funding at WHOI supports its mission of research and higher education (graduate and post-graduate levels). In addition, as resources permit, the Institution's Education, Information, and Sea Grant offices, as well as the joint Marine Biological Laboratory/WHOI Library, prepare outreach and curriculum materials for elementary, secondary, and continuing adult education. In response to the high volume of requests for teaching materials from educators, staff from several of the WHOI outreach offices, including Sea Grant, created a packet of educational materials. To receive a teacher packet, you must be an educator -- formal or informal -- at a school or organization where a program or coursework in marine science and/or oceanography is offered.

Environmental Guide for New England Mariners
Helpful to educators and students.
Only available on loan from the National Sea Grant Library
McConnell, M.
12 pp., 1991 WHOI-H-89-001
This booklet describes how boaters can, and in some instances must, play an even more active role in keeping coastal waters clean and healthy. To date there haven't been enough pump-out stations, or knowledge of where they are, to help mariners dispose of their waste responsibly. Now, however, more pump-out facilities are coming on line, more floating 'honey wagons' are in use, and more enforcement is becoming apparent throughout the region. Whether you have a canoe, a cabin cruiser, or something in between, what you do on - and to - your boat makes a difference to all of us!

More detailed descriptions are given, in alphabetical order, on the accompanying pages. The name of one contact person for each organization is also provided.

Women in Marine Science... Good Girls Don't?
Helpful to educators and students.
Campbell, L.A.
Nor'easter, Vol. 2, No. 1, pp. 26-31, 1990 WHOI-R-90-010
Though women have succeeded in breaking into many previously male- dominated fields in recent years, it is still unusual to find them in science and technology careers. This article describes some of the specific trials faced by women in science, as well as the changes taking place in attitudes and institutions. The personal stories presented here illustrate the wide variety of marine science careers that exist and the uniqueness of the women who pursue them.

Groundwater Resource Guide
Helpful to educators and students.
Only available on loan from the National Sea Grant Library
Cape Cod Environmental Education Resource Center (CCEERC)
Vol. 1, No. 1, 8 pp., 1990 WHOI-H-90-002
Imagine a life where the water you use is unsafe to drink. Imagine a time when there is not enough water available. And imagine what it would be like to use only bottled water for your needs. In order to prevent these problems from becoming reality, we must learn to protect and conserve our limited and valuable water supply. This groundwater resource guide, published by a group of educators on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, discusses the water cycle, the water budget, zones of aeration and saturation, hydrogeology, and how groundwater gets polluted. Complete with illustrations and activities for the classroom, as well as a glossary and bibliography, this 8-page guide can be a valuable teaching tool.

Depositing "Grey Literature" in the U.S. Technical Information System: Who is Responsible?
Only available on loan from the National Sea Grant Library
Helpful to educators and students.
Putnam, S.S.
Report from the IAMSLIC '90 Conference, 1990, 9 pp., 1990 WHOI-R-90-007
A large percentage of current technical information falls into the category of "grey literature" which is difficult to identify and acquire. It is typically unpublished or quasipublished material that cannot be obtained through the usual bookselling channels and is rarely incorporated into the large databases and standard reference sources. A portion of this critical body of technical information can be located in online databases such as NTIS. Presumably government depositories collect the information published by their agencies....or do they? It is apparent that not all of the literature issued by agencies and their contractors has actually been received by the depositories. How does the "grey literature" get into the government depositories such as NTIS, DTIC, NASA, GPO, Sea Grant, and the municipal, state and Federal depository libraries? Who is responsible for depositing this material? This paper answers these questions for a non-government, marine research facility and describes some of the responsibilities librarians must assume to ensure timely dissemination of information through the technical information network.

Sea Grant's Role in Marine Education
Helpful to educators and students.
Wildman, R.D. and D.A. Ross
Oceanus, Vol. 33, No. 3, pp. 39-45, 1990 WHOI-R-90-005
Never before have scientific and environmental issues dominated the actions of countries and the concerns of individuals as they do today. Despite the fact that these issues are covered almost daily on the front pages of our newspapers and featured on the evening TV news. There are only a few programs in the United States that are striving to increase the numbers of marine scientists and engineers. One that is active in the marine area is the National Sea Grant College Program, which is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in the U.S. Department of Commerce.
