A Study of Enlisted Training and Education in Applied Oceanography.
Schriner, Karl Leonard
The study concludes that the primary reason for present programs of enlisted training and education in oceanography is to support Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW). There is a significant lack of courses, schools, and self-study material available to enlisted personnel on the subject of oceanography. Through more extensive training the aviation ASW community is more advanced than the surface ASW community in the ability to utilize environmental knowledge of the oceans to their advantage in ASW. ASW sonar technicians (STs) are inadequately trained in environmental effects on underwater sound propagation. To increase the oceanography knowledge of all enlisted personnel including STs and to help enlisted ratings to better utilize training in environmental effects, several programs are proposed. These programs include an ASW sensor rating and an oceanographer rating. (NTIS)
