Abstract : The purpose of the research is to determine what personnel action, if any, should be instituted to provide optimum enlisted personnel utilization in oceanography. A major part of the research is concentrated on enlisted personnel requirements aboard Navy survey ships. Three out of eight Navy manned survey ships were visited, and contact was established with a fourth. Included among these four ships were three ships from the two largest classes of survey ships. Research findings indicate that oceanography in the Navy is a broad field encompassing several diverse programs and activities. The great majority of all enlisted personnel billet requirements are within the scope of existing classifications and training programs. However, survey ships do employ a few enlisted personnel in oceanographic work that is not included within their present ratings. Current planning indicates that there will be no significant change to the total number of enlisted personnel required aboard these survey ships in the forseeable future. (Author)
