The question of resources--who owns them, who can develop them, and who can distribute them, arises continually at the Law of the Seas Conference. A program and policy for transferring marine technology and for sharing expertise and knowledge as well as resource wealth is needed. This report is an anthology of papers considering the range of possibilities and limitations for improving the effectiveness of U.S. activities in international marine science and technology programs. The papers are divided into three volumes, according to areas: social-political-economic aspects, scientific and technical aspects, and a proposal for hypothetical U.S. program in international marine science and technology sharing with an accompanying country case study of Mexico as a possible participant. This proposal includes specific administrative recommendations for a U.S. program in international marine cooperation.
