Description

Excerpt from Abridged Chronology of Events Related to Federal Legislation for Oceanography, 1956-65 This chronology was first prepared in January 1965 on the initiative of the Science Policy Research Division, when intensified activity in the 89th Congress in the field of ocean sciences and engineering was reflected in frequent requests for information and legislative research. The chronology has been periodically updated, and the enclosed material reflects congressional actions through July 15, 1965. The study is in five parts. Part I is a chronology, beginning with landmark events in 1956, that highlights legislatively significant action by both the President and the Congress; Part II contains explanatory notes which elucidate contents of the earlier list; Part III is a brief summary of Federal funding in oceanography, by agency and functional area; Part IV contains a summary of congressional action by the 86th, 87th, 88th, and 89th Congresses related to oceano graphic legislation, and Part V is a selected bibliography of those papers and articles bearing on elements of oceanography of legisla tive rather than scientific interest.
