Session 3. BIO Topic Session
The Practical Handbook at 50: A celebration of the life and career of Tim Parsons

Co-Convenors: James Christian (Canada) and Tsuneo Ono (Japan)

The importance of Strickland and Parsons' A Practical Handbook of Seawater Analysis to the development of oceanographic science is difficult to overstate. The first version of the book, A Manual of Sea Water Analysis, was published by the Fisheries Research Board of Canada in 1960. Half a century on, we are in a position to examine the role that this manual and its descendants have played in the development of biological and chemical oceanography. This session invites papers on the role that the development and standardization of analytical methods has played in the evolution of oceanography, and the evolution of our understanding of planktonic ecosystems that methodological innovation has catalyzed.
