On July 8, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) scientist Mike Bothner was invited to speak at the Sea Education Association in Woods Hole, MA, to an oceanography class of high-school teachers from around the United States.

Mike reviewed the multidisciplinary science that has been applied by the USGS to pollution problems in Boston Harbor and Massachusetts Bay, and showed how our work supported many management decisions surrounding a $4-billion sewage-treatment upgrade and a court-ordered environmental-monitoring program. He also introduced the teachers to a novel demonstration of pressure in the ocean, using standard laboratory equipment.
