This document contains two workshop reports and several brief technical reports, all on aspects of ocean data telemetry and platform positioning. The principal topic is a Summary of an Ocean Telemetry Workshop held at the AGUASLO Ocean Sciences Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana, on 15 January 1986. A brief version of this summary appeared in EOS, Transactions of the American Geophysical Union, 4 March 1986. Both the full summary presented here and the brief form in EOS were coauthored by D. Brooks of Texas AM University. Included here is a list of the attendees at that workshop Appendix A, and a description of the goals and membership of the AGU Ocean Sciences Section Technical Committee on Ocean Data Telemetry and Platform Positioning, which was formed at that meeting Appendix B. An earlier, informal, local workshop on telemetry was held at Woods Hole in March 1985 a report on that meeting is in Appendix C. Technical summaries are given on Meteor-Burst Telemetry Appendix D, the GEOSTAR positioning system Appendix E, tradeoffs for various telemetry systems Appendix F, a proposed communications network authored by M. Comberiate from NASA Goddard Appendix G, and the possibilities of a new kind of HF telemetry system Appendix H. A small discussion at Woods Hole prior to the January Telemetry Workshop is reported in Appendix I. Author
