To better connect educators and students who are interested in NOAA’s education and science resources, NOAA has just completed a major update of the agency’s primary education resource portal, http://www.education.noaa.gov.
I am deeply saddened to share news of the passing of Dr. Isabella Abbott on October 28 at the age of 91. A pioneer in the study of central-Pacific seaweeds, Izzie was a font of knowledge and a beacon of inspiration for generations of marine biologists around the world, but especially at the two institutions where she taught, Stanford University and the University of Hawaii.
