The five major program areas supported by this contract are reviewed. References to published papers and papers in various stages of preparation are given. Sample charts of E, P and E-P and the harmonic analysis of the E-P fields for the Equatorial Atlantic are given and ways to study variation in sub-surface salinity are described. The ways data for extreme stability conditions and high wind speeds were analysed in a study of air sea interaction are described. The study of structured fluids is progressing toward the long range goal of more realistic ocean circulation models in terms of a better representation of small scale and meso-scale eddies. The present status treats non-stationary flow of microdeformable fluids. A state of the art model of the North Atlantic is described in preliminary form with many interesting results.
