Abstract : The instrument developed at NRL for the continuous stripping and periodic analysis of dissolved gases in water has undergone a very successful 'sea trial' aboard an operating submarine. No unforeseen difficulties were experienced in the transition from laboratory to field operation. While the purpose of the test was not for collection of specific oceanographic data, the results correlate well with literature predictions for the ocean area surveyed. The equipment should have value for the routine collection of profile data on gas contents in the coming generation of submersible research vessels. (Author)
