This is a summary of a preliminary plan offered to the federal government and to the tidewater states of the east coast to initiate a comprehensive program to obtain vital information to protect and use the nation's Atlantic offshore resources. This is primarily a technical and scientific plan to address and find answers to critical problems confronting the users of offshore areas and to propose plans to understand nature's fundamental processes at work off-shore. This summary suggests how the program might be managed, how long it will take, how much it might cost, and where the resources might be found to pay for it. This plan also addresses the questions of how tidewater states can benefit, how the results will be made available, and how the public can participate in setting program directions and benefit from knowledge gained.
