The fond memories evolved over the years into a devotion and storied career in marine science. Now on the brink of his retirement, the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science professor who has already earned the rank of "Admiral of the Chesapeake"
is due to receive the Mathias Medal, a prestigious award presented to only six other scientists in nearly three decades.
