First Paragraph

On October 1, 1986, the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR), under a Cooperative Agreement with the Office of the Chief of Naval Research, assumed the management and operation of the Institute for Naval Oceanography. The Institute is sponsored by the Office of Naval Research, the Office of Naval Technology and the Oceanographer of the Navy. As annunciated on July 17, 1984, the Institute is an initiative of the Secretary of the Navy. Its overall mission is to ensure the Navy’s leadership in oceanic and atmospheric modeling and exploitation of satellite remote sensing data and supercomputer technology. The Institute is chartered to be linked with academic and research institutions and other agency programs. Its research and development program serves to hasten the day when the oceanographer’s equivalent of the meteorologist’s synoptic weather chart is available on a regular basis.
