Ocean Careers: A Survey of Opportunities and Requirements.
Intended for use by senior high school students, teachers, and guidance counselors, this document is designed to serve as a reference to those individuals seeking more information on the education and work required in various marine careers. Marine careers are classified into three broad groups: (1) fully qualified professionals, (2) partially qualified assistants, and (3) support personnel. These groups are distinguished by level of training or education and amount of responsibility in marine science work. Detailed examinations at many careers in each of the three groups is presented, along with employment trends in these areas. Training and education needed for employment in these careers is given. An annotated bibliography of both publications and films related to marine career education is included. Even though this publication has some focus on the New York City area, it should be useful to other localaties. (MR)
