Abstract : The study examines the need for oceanography specialists and subspecialists to possess a degree of managerial expertise and concludes that some type of formalized management education is required. Special management skills are required for optimum performance by oceanography officers in nearly all of the more senior fillets - Captain, Commander, and the majority of the Lieutenant Commander billets. The study presents the reasoning which leads to the above conclusion and then answers four basic questions. (Author)
