Abstract:

Most of the investigations programmed in the project depend on the information obtained from the flights made with the research aircraft NASA 926 Convair 240 which was the only one instrumented and in operation. Unfortunately, the output of data from the flight missions was very limited. From the total of five flight missions scheduled for the program July, October and December 1966, February and April 1967 only two can be considered successful July 1966 and February 1967. Project staffing, facilities and capabilities as well as projected research plans for the forthcoming quarter are outlined together with a consideration of arrangements whereby the utilization of remote sensors for oceanographic studies may be made effective.
