Samuel Y. Johnson was chosen as the next chief scientist for the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)'s Coastal and Marine Geology (CMG) team in the Western Region. Currently working with the USGS' Central Geologic Hazards team in Denver, CO, Sam and his family will move this summer to California, where he will become the first CMG chief scientist to be stationed at the USGS Pacific Science Center in Santa Cruz, CA.

In mid-April, Sam paid his first official visit to the team, holding all-hands and one-on-one meetings with team members in Menlo Park and Santa Cruz. Sam was enthusiastic about the Coastal and Marine Geology Program, which, as he pointed out, has unique opportunities to integrate scientific research in a broad range of specialties. As he put it, "we are the one USGS program positioned to do anything." His friendliness and energy inspired team members, who look forward to working with him to advance the team's scientific activities in the regional and national arenas.

While he is in Denver, Sam will stay in contact with team and program members, taking part in the FY04 proposal process, for example. We look forward to his arrival in California in August.
