The lives of UK marine scientists
We are fortunate that the lives of several marine scientists have been documented in published obituaries and, in the case of recent Fellows of the Royal Society, in Biographical Memoirs. We have compiled a list of those that are available online. These are arranged in chronological order together with a short description of the major contributions that each individual has made.
Some of the staff at Bidston Observatory in the 1950s alongside the Bidston One O’Clock Gun. Bidston was where Joseph Proudman, Arthur Doodson and David Carwright, three of the FRSs in our list, were based.
A recent and more comprehensive insight into the lives of scientists can be found in recorded (and in many cases, transcribed) oral histories. Many of these have been compiled by the British Library through their Voices of Science and are listed below with direct links to the recordings. Also included in this list are links to recordings made under the auspices of other organisations.

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.
