Abstract : The report updates the record of services performed for the Nation and the Navy in the fields of hydrography and oceanography by this one hundred and thirty-six year old activity. During the period covered by this report there have been significant changes in the organization and operational concepts of the Office tailored to keep abreast of dynamic technology and to cope with a broadened mission. The effectiveness of these changes is reflected by our increased capabilities to serve the Navy, other governmental agencies, and science in general. (Author)
