Abstract : The purpose of the symposium was to determine what work was being carried out by marine scientists and engineers in automatic data handling which would have direct application to the Navy's operational problems in handling oceanographic data for fleet use. Papers presented at the symposium were intended to cover the following questions: (1) What methods are in use or under development or seriously contemplated for recording data directly in a form suitable for a pre-written program on a computer ashore. (2) What methods are in use or under development or seriously contemplated for automatic processing and readout or display aboard ship for tactical purposes. (3) What guidance can researches in oceanography (recently completed or underway) using large amounts of automatic computation, give use as to the forms in which reduced data should be analyzed, stored, summarized, and disseminated.
