First Paragraph

Since February, 1978, the Chemical Oceanography Program of the National Science Foundation and the Oceanic Chemistry Program of the Office of Naval Research have been jointly convening a series of Dissertation Symposia in Chemical Oceanography (DISCO). In recent years the Sea Grant Program of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has also co-sponsored the meetings. On several occasions, The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization has provided travel grants to individuals from developing countries. The National Environmental Research Council of the U.K. and the Norwegian Research Council also have sponsored several participants.
