Faculty Council Memorializes Beloved Colleague

By Javier Chagoya

NPS Research Professor Tim Stanton, holds a framed memorial resolution recognizing the work of his late wife NPS Professor Mary L. Batteen at Ingersoll Hall, Feb. 12. The resolution was passed unanimously by the NPS Faculty Council and presented to Stanton during a brief ceremony held in Batteen's honor.

NPS Professor and Faculty Chair David Olwell read from the resolution to the assembled NPS faculty and leadership in attendance.

"Professor Batteen was a noted scholar of oceanography, who made a substantial contribution to our knowledge of the oceans through her research and publications; was a gifted teacher who dedicated her professional life to prepare Naval officers for service to their country; and was a beloved colleague who genuinely enriched the NPS community," read Olwell.

Batteen joined NPS in 1985, teaching at the university for a total of 29 years. She was a beloved member of the Meteorology and Oceanography (METOC) community and chaired NPS' Department of Oceanography from 2001-2008. The Faculty Council's resolution can be read in its entirety here (Intranet-remote access).
