Madhavi Mamidipalli, a graduate student in computer sciences at Western Kentucky University, has joined the Woods Hole team as an Environmental Careers Organization (ECO) contractor. Madhavi will be working with Page Valentine to modify existing databases and to develop a new database that will support a benthic-habitat classification system for New England and eastern Canada.

Joel Moore has departed for graduate school in the Geosciences Department at Pennsylvania State University after almost 2 years as an ECO intern on the New York and Long Island Sound Regional Pollution projects. He is replaced by Sandy Baldwin, who recently graduated in geoscience from Hobart and William Smith Colleges, NY, where she also participated in numerous limnology research projects.

Dirk Koopmans also joined the pollution studies team in July and will assist with production of maps and publications. Dirk has an M.S. in marine sciences from the University of Georgia and a B.S. in natural resource management from Cornell University, and he has worked on various oceanographic, watershed, and ecosystem geochemical projects.

Irina Abramson is in Woods Hole as the Wesleyan Summer Intern. She recently graduated in Earth and environmental sciences from Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT, where she participated in collaborative USGS studies on foraminifers in Long Island Sound sedimentary deposits.
