My mission is to host the largest collection of online oceanographic information and multimedia content in the world. By combining education, basic research and electronic publishing technology, I hope to foster a greater understanding of the sea and its inhabitants.
Within the scope of the mission, I strive to:
Please be aware that this site serves many hundreds of students every semester. To insure their privacy, some of the pages are password protected. You will not be allowed to view those pages.

The Remarkable Ocean World offers memberships for those who wish to support our mission and help us accomplish our pioneering goals. Your $5 annual membership donation helps offset the expenses of maintaining the site, allows us to add new features and lets us bring you the most up-to-date and complete oceanographic information possible. Most importantly, member support helps college students reach their dreams.
Except for student-safe sections of the site, all of the pages on this site are available for public use. They always have been and they always will be. Our library features over 300 pages of lecture notes created specifically to provide general information about the sea. The library also includes hundreds of digital images, audio files and video files available for viewing or download.
A few members-only pages and special events will be developed in the near future to add value to your membership. However, exclusivity and commercial gain are not the intent in offering these memberships. We truly hope you will share our vision of educating the young minds of the future and join us in this life-long journey.
Besides supporting a good cause, members benefit in these other important ways:
Heck, I love this site so much I wanted to offer t-shirts, coffee mugs and other goodies. Sometime in Fall 1999, I hope to open the gift shop (just in time for Christmas, hint, hint...). I will also offer special weeked expeditions to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and other gorgeous seaside locations. More details forthcoming! Click here to peek in the window of the Remarkable Ocean World Gift Shop.
What's an educational web site without a bookstore? The bookstore offers bound editions of the lecture note series and lab manual (coming soon!) published on this site. I will also offer a Forum for selling used books as well as links to online textbook vendors and commercial book and video vendors. Future offerings include a Remarkable Ocean World CD-ROM and Video Series. Stay tuned for more details! Click here to browse the shelves at the Remarkable Ocean World Book Store!

Thanks for Visiting!
Thank you for spending time here! We realize that you could have chosen to spend time on another web site, but we won't go into that. May the mystery of the sea surround you and fill you with wisdom, joy and hope! Surf long and prosper!
