REVIEW AND COMMENT • History of the U.S. Academic Oceanographic Research Fleet and the Sources of Research Ships

T.K. Treadwell D.S. Gorsline R. West
First Paragraph

In this article we sketch the evolution of the U.S. oceanographic fleet, concentrating on academic research vessels. We also discuss briefly the sources of research ships and their operational support: these factors seem especially pertinent in the context of our present aging and somewhat underutilized fleet.
