Abstract : Oceanographic studies oriented directly to antisubmarine warfare were generally terminated after World War II, and reverted to classical approaches of seasonal surveys and basic research. In 1957, at the urging of the Bureau of Aeronautics, the Naval Oceanographic Office commenced investigations into some of the apparent anomalies affecting antisubmarine warfare (ASW) equipment. The Antisubmarine Warfare Environmental Prediction System (ASWEPS) was established.
