Pagination or Media Count:
In November 1967 the National Council on Marine Resources and Engineering Development designated the U. S. Coast Guard as the lead agency for the development of National Data Buoy Systems NDBS. The USCG established the National Data Buoy Development Project Office NDBDPO in January 1968. On February 1968, TRC was awarded a nine-month contract to carry out additional studies to support further development planning of NDBS. These studies included 1 Assessment of the applicability of NDBS to refined national requirements for marine oceanographic and meteorological data 2 NDBS characteristics and their impact on data use and the measurement of natural phenomena 3 The cost-effectiveness of NDBS when considered as one element of a national marine data collection system composed of data collection platforms of many types 4 Computer programs for NDBS simulation and cost models 5 Analysis of cruise strategies and costs for deployment of NDBS 6 A summary of 1968 NDBS development planning support studies. The above-referenced twelve reports provide the basis for the remainder of this paper.
