Women In Science

As with all the sciences, oceanography needs to work harder to improve its gender parity and equality of opportunity for all. As part of the recent hydrographoic research cruise JC159 on RRS James Cook across the subtropical South Atlantic, we celebrated the fantastic work of our colleagues and their contribution to the Ocean Sciences, and they explained a little of how they got where they are.
