Firestone, Mary A.
Presented are abstracts of 700 computer programs in marine science. The programs listed are categorized under a wide range of headings which include physical oceanography, chemistry, coastal and estuarine processes, biology, pollution, air-sea interaction and heat budget, navigation and charting, curve fitting, and applied mathematics. The introduction explains where programs are available and how to obtain them. It also explains the procedures involved for submitting a program. For each program, the titles, language, and hardware are given along with a brief description of what the program can do, who wrote it, and where it is available. A list of other National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC) programs, a general index, a language index, a hardware index, an institution index, and a Federal information processing standard software summary are also included.
