Celebrating with Patty Fryer

A zoom celebration for Patty Fryer (right), with in-person congratulations from Rob Wright (left), Gerard Fryer (center), Jeff Taylor (background) and more, was held today on the occasion of her retirement after nearly four decades of dedicated research, teaching, and service at UH Mānoa. Dr. Fryer is an authority on the geology/petrology of subduction zones, has expertise in the Mariana Trench, and has led many scientific cruises. Her distinguished accomplishments also include serving as scientific adviser for the Mariana Trench expedition in May 2019 (see our 2019 news item) and for the 2012 expedition during which James Cameron became the first person to complete a solo dive to the deepest place on Earth (see our 2012 news item and our 2014 news item about the dive-project’s documentary premiere.) Congratulations and best wishes!
