Abstract : The document describes the potential utilization of manned underwater laboratories by oceanographic and related investigators during the 1965-1970 time period. Suggested research programs, instrumentation requirements to support these programs, and site preference for geographical location of underwater laboratories are discussed. The study supports the feasibility and desirability of active participation in the Navy's Man-in-the-Sea Program by the oceanographic research scientist. It points up requirements generated by this participation which will require further definition and development, and includes some technical derivatives on laboratory design considerations, manned submersibles, and external instrumentation requirements. The desirability for a Navy-sponsored Symposium on Underwater Oceanography in the near future to establish liaison with the oceanographer and define his relationship to underwater project development is emphasized and recommended.
