[Scott W. Nixon; Betty A. Buckley – "A Strikingly Rich Zone - Nutrient Enrichment and Secondary Production in Coastal Marine Ecosystems" - Estuaries Vol. 25, No. 4b, p. 782–796 August 2002 [http://estuariesandcoasts.org/journal/ESTU2002/ESTU2002_25_4B_782_796.pdf] ]

He was professor at the University of Liverpool heading the chair of oceanography which had been created in 1919 by professor William Abbott Herdman and his wife. James Johnstone a had this responsibility from 1920 to 1932 [ University of Liverpool - "Emeritus Professors, Professors and Honorary Graduates" [http://www.liv.ac.uk/commsec/calendar_07_08/emprofs_profs_hongrads.htm] ]
