I have many people to thank for an enjoyable career in chemical oceanography and environmental chemistry, and I hope that I am not yet finished with this career. First and foremost my family was very supportive (my wife Shirley, daughter Karen, and son Jeff) and endured countless late nights at the laboratory and weeks to months while I was away at sea—including a Thanksgiving, a Christmas, and a New Year. I wish to acknowledge my Ph.D. supervisor Professor James G. Quinn of the GSO-URI and to thank him once again for his unselfish devotion to his students and their careers. I also extend my appreciation to Professor Michael E.Q. Pilson of the GSO-URI for introducing me to chemical oceanography in his graduate class on the subject.

I am grateful to colleagues and coworkers, students and postdocs at the GSO-URI, the University of Massachusetts-Boston, and especially the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (where I have been in some category of appointment for twenty-six years) who enriched my life throughout my career. Professor Edward D. Goldberg of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography has provided guidance and advice for many aspects of my research and included me in many of his national and international ventures since we first met in 1972. I hope that other valued colleagues will understand my not mentioning them each by name. The list is extensive! Contribution Number 10083, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
