Dennis Krohn from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)'s St. Petersburg Science Center in St. Petersburg, FL, spoke to the Florida Suncoast chapter of the Ninety-Nines club on February 8. The Ninety-Nines, Inc., are an international organization of female pilots founded in 1929 to promote women in aviation.

Dennis met their program chairman, Sofia Payton, at the Girl Scouts 90th-anniversary celebration (see article in December 2002/January 2003 Sound Waves). Sofia liked Dennis' research topic on volcanic ash and aviation safety and asked him to be the speaker for the Ninety-Nines' February meeting at Albert Whitted Airport in St. Petersburg, FL. The women found the topic so interesting and important that they are asking him back to talk to their aviation-safety committee.
