Challenger Council Biography, President
Name: Harry L. Bryden

How I got into science?
I always thought I would be a teacher, probably a Maths teacher. But then an opportunity of a summer post in oceanography came up and I thought I would try marine science until it became too difficult or no longer interesting. 40 years on I am still waiting to start teaching Maths.
Who inspires me?
In the beginning Henry Stommel and Nick Fofonoff inspired me. But over time it has been my present and past Ph.D. students¹ enthusiasm and achievements that provide continued inspiration. Answering important scientific questions when we were not even sure whether they could be answered provides greatest satisfaction
