Pat Barosh of Barosh and Associates, Inc., visited Page Valentine and Debbie Hutchinson on April 27 to discuss geologic and tectonic interpretations of multi-beam imagery from Mass Bay and Stellwagen Bank. He is interested in extending Paleozoic and Mesozoic structural trends from onshore across the western part of the Gulf of Maine.

Steve Petsch of Yale University visited Steve Colman and John Bratton on April 30 to discuss opportunities for research. Steve P. was accepted as the 1999/2000 WHOI/USGS post-doc and plans to start his post-doc this fall. Part of his research will be on the environmental geochemistry of Chesapeake Bay sediments.

Dr. Timothy Stern, professor at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, visited WHFC between May 7-22, and was hosted by Uri ten Brink. Dr. Stern is the New Zealand principal investigator working on an international project to study collision, subduction, and strike-slip across the South Island of New Zealand. The geologic setting of the South Island is similar in many ways to those of southern California and the Transverse Ranges of central California. Dr. Stern described some of the spectacular results from his project in a talk at WHOI and compared recent results from southern California with Uri ten Brink.

Ms. Barbara Waters and Neta Rotberg visited on May 11 to discuss environmental and water resource issues relative to the Middle East with Uri ten Brink. Ms. Rotberg is part of a group from Israel and various Arab countries who were invited by a private New England foundation to form a regional working group on the subject. Ms. Waters is an environmental educator on Cape Cod.

On May 17, Lee Roberts, Computer Specialist from Reston, conducted two separate Budget and Science Information System (BASIS) training classes for the Woods Hole staff. She was visiting the WHFC with the Women's Advisory Committee.
