  • Description:
    Recent years have seen a considerable advance in our understanding of the ocean and its many interacting processes. It has also been a time of increased public awareness of the ocean and the need for better dialog between government and the public (including the scientific community). Budget cuts are becoming a way of life and require that priorities in ocean research and management be established. It is under these conditions that a program like Sea Grant has worked and contributed. This document describes the projects that have been supported by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Sea Grant Program during the period 1984-1986 plus those that have continued in 1987. A goal of our Sea Grant Program is the evaluation, development, utilization, and conservation of our national ocean and coastal resources. This requires the skill of a wide variety of marine scientists, as well as educational and advisory aspects. In 1985, the Sea Grant Program was elevated to Institution status. We have presented testimony on several aspects of ocean use and hosted several important meetings and workshops. Among the latter are: "Exploratory Workshop on Fisheries Sociology," "Eelgrass: The Plant the Community and their Possible Decline," "Workshop on Beach Nourishment: Its Future for the Massachusetts Coast," and "Symposium on Hydrodynamics and Sediment Dynamics of Tidal Inlets." Research during the 1984-87 period focused on several themes including: Fisheries Biology and Management; Human Impact on the Marine Environment; Coastal Resource Management; and Marine Resource Development. An important effort has been on the pollution problems in Buzzards Bay resulting from high quantities of PCB in coastal waters. Although research is the main objective of our Program, the transfer of general information and the results of our research are also important parts of our effort.
