Abstract : In its program of ocean thermal structure forecasting, the Antisubmarine Warfare Environmental Prediction System of the Naval Oceanographic Office has been experimenting with various automated methods. The present numerical analysis technique, as applied under conditions of insufficient data, is investigated by the author. The Conditional Relaxation Analysis Method (CRAM) appears to result in reliable analyses when the amount and distribution of data received is sufficient. Further research is required to improve numerical analysis methods for cases of insufficient data. (Author)
