First Paragraph

During January, 1988, a contingent of about 120 United States coastal physical oceanographers and a few associates from other disciplines met to consider plans for the next decade and beyond. The group identified important major problems and sought ways to expedite their solution. Tentatively, the emphasis is on mass and momentum exchanges from the surf zone, across the shelf, and out to the open ocean on time scales of hours to years. A summary of the meeting is in preparation, and this report will be broadly circulated to the oceanographic community.
