-STATUTE-

(a) Establishment. - The Secretary of the Navy shall establish a

program to be known as the ''National Oceanographic Partnership

Program''.

(b) Purposes. - The purposes of the program are as follows:

(1) To promote the national goals of assuring national

security, advancing economic development, protecting quality of

life, and strengthening science education and communication

through improved knowledge of the ocean.

(2) To coordinate and strengthen oceanographic efforts in

support of those goals by -

(A) identifying and carrying out partnerships among Federal

agencies, academia, industry, and other members of the

oceanographic scientific community in the areas of data,

resources, education, and communication; and

CONGRESSIONAL FINDINGS

Section 281 of Pub. L. 104-201 provided that: ''Congress finds

the following:

''(1) The oceans and coastal areas of the United States are

among the Nation's most valuable natural resources, making

substantial contributions to economic growth, quality of life,

and national security.

''(2) Oceans drive global and regional climate. Hence, they

contain information affecting agriculture, fishing, and the

prediction of severe weather.

''(3) Understanding of the oceans through basic and applied

research is essential for using the oceans wisely and protecting

their limited resources. Therefore, the United States should

maintain its world leadership in oceanography as one key to its

competitive future.

''(4) Ocean research and education activities take place within

Federal agencies, academic institutions, and industry. These

entities often have similar requirements for research facilities,

data, and other resources (such as oceanographic research

vessels).

''(5) The need exists for a formal mechanism to coordinate

existing partnerships and establish new partnerships for the

sharing of resources, intellectual talent, and facilities in the

ocean sciences and education, so that optimal use can be made of

this most important natural resource for the well-being of all

Americans.''
