Dedication to Matthew Fontaine Maury
Convener of the Symposium
It is a pleasure to open this Symposium on Antarctic Research, named in honor of Matthew Fontaine Maury. It is fitting that
this Symposium, based on results obtained by scientists of many countries, working harmoniously and fruitfully in Antarctica
during and after the International Geophysical Year of 1957–58, should be dedicated to Maury—a pioneer in co-operative international
studies of the oceans, the atmosphere, and polar regions.
