The deep ocean survey project of the U. S. Naval Oceanographic Office is a multipurpose survey whose purpose is to obtain information in all strategic areas to support navy requirements, and additionally, to contribute information beneficial to the scientific and economic community. Oceanographic, geophysical, and acoustic data are collected from ships operating both in the North Pacific and the North Atlantic oceans. Major portions of the North Atlantic and the Western North Pacific have been surveyed under the two tasks within the project, the marine geophysical survey MGS performed by contractors, and the anti- submarine warfareundersea warfare surveys ASWUSW performed by oceanographic office personnel aboard military sea transportation service MSTS and character vessels. Reports of the data are published within a year after completion of the surveys and the original data are forwarded to established data repositories after analysis are completed.
