Abstract : The 1982 Progress Report Abstracts of the Oceanic Biology Program represents the fourteenth year in which the projects supported by the program have been represented in a report of this nature. Progress Report Abstracts is the single document of the Program that brings together all the investigations receiving support and relates them to broad naval problem areas while presenting a brief of the scientific objectives and accomplishments. The purpose of these Abstracts is twofold. They serve to introduce and relate the Program to other offices and bureaus of the Navy as well as other government agencies. Secondly, but perhaps more importantly, they serve as an avenue for coordination and communication among investigators whose projects are sponsored by this Program. A broad range of studies in marine biology and biological oceanography is represented. Techniques and approaches used by one discipline may also prove useful to others, and the forum presented by these abstracts can provide an interchange that normally might not result from a literature search or dialogues with colleagues.
