The Department of Ocean, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Old Dominion University (http://sci.odu.edu/oceanography/) invites applications for a tenure track position as Assistant or Associate Professor in Physical Oceanography. We seek a broad-minded scholar with an interest in the physical processes in the ocean on times scales of inter-annual to centuries and their role in the Earth System. Preference will be given to scientists who employ quantitative analytical methods and/or models and focus their research on societally relevant issues, such as global and climate change, the role of the ocean in the global water cycle, and development of predictive capabilities on decadal time scales.

The Ocean Challenge Badge
The Ocean Challenge Badge was launched on 27th October, developed by the Youth and United Nations Global Alliance (YUNGA) in collaboration with PML and other organisations.
The Ocean Challenge Badge is an exciting new way to empower children and young people to play a role in protecting the ocean for future generations. The badge booklet is packed with activities to educate on how the ocean works, the creatures that live in it, and just how important the ocean is in our everyday lives. It was created as part of the Challenge Badge series from YUNGA and partners to be used by teachers in school classes, youth leaders and especially Guide or Scout groups. All badges are intended to raise awareness, educate and motivate young people to change their behaviour and be active agents of change in their local communities.
