The interest shown by coastal metropolitan centers in the disposal of waste materials on the U.S. continental margins has initiated action by several Federal agencies to determine the information available concerning U.S. coastal waters. A study was conducted to determine the amount and availability of oceanographic data for the continental margins of the United States and also to summarize or display the oceanographic data in a form that could be used by the Bureau for quick reference purposes. The ultimate objective is to be able to answer, on short notice, the questions as to whether a particular area is suitable for disposal of solid waste.
