    María de los Ángeles Alvariño González age, wiki, biography

    María de los Ángeles Alvariño González's birthday is on October 3, 1916 and birth place is Serantes, Galicia, Spain. She died on May 29, 2005 at the age of 88 years and her place of death was La Jolla, California, U.S. Her Parents are Antonio Alvariño Grimaldos and Maria del Carmen Gonzales Diaz-Saavedra de Alvariño. Her mother's name is Maria del Carmen Gonzales Diaz-Saavedra de Alvariño and her father's name is Antonio Alvariño Grimaldos. By profession her father was a doctor. 

    Maria De Los Angeles Alvarino Gonzalez  exhibited an early interest in the natural sciences and read her father's zoology book. She went to the lycée Concepcion Arenal in Ferrol. She next enrolled at the University of Santiago de Compostela in 1931, where she received her summa cum laude degree in 1933. "Social Insects" and "Women in Don Quixote" were the names of her dissertations. She was accepted to the Complutense University of Madrid in 1934 to pursue a degree in Natural Sciences, but she was forced to discontinue her studies as a result of the Spanish Civil War. She dedicated herself to learning English and French, in this time frame. It turned out to be very beneficial for the growth of her research career in the United States later on in her life.

    Maria De Los Angeles Alvarino Gonzalez tied the knot with Eugenio Leira Manso, captain of the Spanish War Navy and Knight of the Royal and Military Order of Saint Hermenegild in 1940. After two years of marriage they welcomed a girl named Maria de los Angeles Leira Alvariño. Maria de los Angeles Leira Alvariño, today is a well-known architect and urbanist living in the United States of America.

    Ángeles Álvariño returned to school after the Civil War, and the University of Madrid granted her a master's degree in natural sciences in 1941. Ángeles Álvariño and her husband relocated to Ferrol, where she worked as a teacher at a number of different institutions from 1941 to 1948, teaching biology, botany, zoology, and geology. She returned to Madrid with her family to serve as a fishery research biologist for the Department of Sea Fisheries, in 1948. It was not possible for Alvariño to continue her study at the Spanish Institute of Oceanography in Madrid because of an old Spanish legislation that prevented women from serving on Spanish navy ships. Nevertheless, since she had exceptional academic qualifications, she was permitted to enroll in certain classes and conduct some research. From the Complutense University of Madrid in 1951, she got a graduate diploma in Analytical Chemistry, Experimental Psychology, and Plant Ecology.

    María de los Ángeles Alvariño González Career

    Maria De Los Angeles Alvarino Gonzalez was internationally renowned as an expert in plankton biology. As a scientist on either British or Spanish exploration ship, she made history as the first woman to hold the position. She has found 22 new kinds of marine creatures and has written more than a hundred scholarly books, essays, and articles. Towards the end of her professional life, she became interested in the history of early scientific exploration of the ocean.

    She returned to Galicia to serve at the Spanish Oceanographic Institute [es] in Vigo, in 1950. A scholarship from the British Council in 1953 enabled her to perform zooplankton research at the Marine Biological Association laboratory in Plymouth, England, under the supervision of internationally renowned zooplankton specialists Frederick S. Russell and Peter C. Corbin. Zooplankton are the small creatures that float around in the ocean and are eaten by other animals. Examples of zooplankton are jellyfish, coral, and sea anemones. It was only in the 1960s that these creatures started being researched. She concentrated on three types the microscopic Chaetognatha, which are carnivorous and eat other plankton; the colonial Siphonophore, which live in groups with similar organisms like the Portuguese Man'o'War; and the medusa or jellyfish. Using plankton from the English Channel and Bay of Biscay as a starting point for her research, she found some oddities in the way plankton species were spread out. This resulted in scientists thinking that the Atlantic waters had shifted poleward in a strange way. She was the first woman to be employed as a scientist onboard a British research ship. She took part in a number of excursions and scientific cruises in the Atlantic and Pacific, on board oceanographic ships from England, Spain, America, and Mexico. Alvariño moved to Spain in 1954, to resume her studies on zooplankton. She devised special nets and hired fishermen and navy research ships in the Atlantic around Spain and Newfoundland, as well as in the Mediterranean to collect plankton specimens for her.

    The Fulbright Commission granted Mara de los Angeles a fellowship in 1956 to perform scientific research at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute on Cape Cod in Massachusetts. She collaborated with Dr. Mary Sears, who was the president of the United States Oceanographic Congress as well as a zooplankton research scientist. When Dr. Mary Sears, who was impressed with the quality of her research, recommended Angeles Alvariño to Dr. Roger Revelle, the director of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, which is a division of the University of California San Diego, her professional path took off. He hired her as a biologist. From 1958 to 1969, she served at UCSD, where she conducted research on the zooplankton off the coast of California, and the Atlantic, Pacific, as well as Indian oceans. She identified 12 new Chaetognatha species, nine new siphonophore species, and one new medusa species, during this time span. She also made a model of how various species of Chaetognatha and Siphonophora are spread out around the world. It was this study that served as the foundation for her doctorate dissertation. In 1967, she was granted a PhD by the University of Madrid. Funds from organizations such as the U.S. Office of the Navy, the California Cooperative Oceanic Fisheries Investigations, and the National Science Foundation of the United States were given to her throughout her research.

    She had been assigned to the role of a Fisheries Research Biologist at the famous Southwest Fisheries Science Center. Her study into the Chaetognatha and Siphonophora, continued here and she looked at how their behavior as predators affected the longevity of fish larvae. She also looked at where Chaetognatha and Siphonophora species lived in the Pacific and Antarctic Oceans as well as how plankton moved and what happened when pollution or ships brought new plankton into the area. Alvariño served as a coordinator of maritime research among Latin American countries, in the late 1970s. She also researched the Antartic at the same time. She got funding from the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) during this time.

    In 1993, she retired as an Emeritus Scientist. However, she kept doing research on seagoing ships that were hosted by different countries. Ángeles Alvariño spent the last years of her life researching the early historical origins of scientific discovery. Her research focused on early Spanish explorers and navigators who made scientific findings about ocean currents and depicted them on maps. Her findings led to the publication of a comprehensive description of the Malaspina Voyage, the first scientific marine journey that sailed over the western Atlantic Ocean and Pacific Ocean from 1789 to 1794.

    Angeles Alvariño also worked as a professor at the National Autonomous University of Mexico in 1976, at San Diego State University from 1979–82; and then at the University of San Diego from 1982–85. She has also served as a guest lecturer at the Federal University of Paraná in Brazil in 1982, as well as at the National Polytechnic Institute of Mexico from 1982–86. Alvariño oversaw the doctorate research of multiple students and worked on thesis committees in a number of different countries during this time frame.

    Maria De Los Angeles Alvarino Gonzalez  passed away on 29 May 2005, at the age of 88, in San Diego , California. She left behind a completed book on the birds and marine species discovered during the Malaspina journey, which she had previously researched. Her daughter will soon finish and translate this work. The chaetognath Aidanosagitta alvarinoae (Pathansali, 1974) and the hydromedusa Lizzia alvarinoae (Segura, 1980) are two planktonic species that have been named after her.

    She was a member of the Biological Society of Washington and the Hispano-American Association of Researchers on Marine Sciences. She was also a member of the American Institute of Fishery Research Biologists and the San Diego Society of Natural History. In 1993, Ángeles Alvarinño earned the Great Silver Medal of Galicia from King Juan Carlos I and Queen Sophia of Spain, in appreciation for her exceptional scientific work.  In 2005, the University of A Coruña devoted the Week of Sciences to her, and the City of Ferrol gave a posthumous homage to her on the Campus of Esteiro, where a memorial plaque recognizes one of the world's most notable female scientists. The Ánxeles Alvariño Postdoctoral Fellowships, which are named after her, are presented by the Government of Galicia. ""Ángeles Alvariño"" is the name of a research ship operated by the Spanish Institute of Oceanography. Maria de los Angeles Leira Alvariño, Ángeles's daughter, was the one who officially inaugurated the ship in 2012. On October 3, 2021, to commemorate Dr. Ángeles Alvariño 105th birthday, Google made a Doodle for its home page that appeared in numerous countries.
