  • Description:
    "An important goal of organized scientific or technical efforts is the compilation, analysis and distribution of knowledge gained. The National Ocean Survey (formerly the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey) traditionally conveys the results of its scientific and technical investigations to its user groups through processed data, reports and various publications. Throughout its long history, the National Ocean Survey (NOS) has published numerous works covering its progress, developments and advances in science and technology. Certain classical documents representing the results of original research or irreplaceable effort are still in demand and have been reprinted from time to time. Others, because of the obsolescence of the data, or of the procedures or techniques used for their attainment, have bee11 withdrawn from circulation and are no longer in print. The users needs, the accuracy, current reliability and serviceability of the data reproduced are the criteria for determining the continuing availability of this information. Many of the early published works, as well as vast stores of archival data in the fields of the Survey's statutorily designated technical fields, are still available in Government repository libraries throughout the country, or through limited files copies in the appropriate technical office of the National Ocean Survey. To provide a cumulative tabulation of these data sources and published works up to the time of the incorporation of the NOS publication program into the broader publication program of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in 1970, the following summary has been prepared. Every effort has been made to present as complete a compilation of publications as possible, however, availability and prices listed are subject to change. Ordering information and addresses are provided for each of the distributing departments."
