Abstract: Four studies were undertaken to deal with several aspects of the boat capacity labeling question.
Study of Automation of Message Handling Functions at USCG COMSTA/RADSTA and Communication Centers
Abstract: This study examines current Coast Guard message handling functions to (1) confirm the need for the application of communications automation techniques to such operations and (2) develop alternative approaches to accomplishing such automation.
Definition and Classification of Natural and Induced Environments of Some Recreational Boats
Abstract: The objective of this work was to examine some of the environmental problems associated with boats and subsystems (equipment), to experiment with test methods, test equipment, data retrieval equipment, and data reduction techniques.
RDT & E Plan for Marine Safety
Abstract: This report presents the results of a study of future research needs in marine safety and environmental protection.
Personal Flotation Devices Research: Phase 2
Abstract: Research on personal flotation devices (PFDs) is reported in three volumes.
Design Disclosure for the Ocean Dumping Surveillance System's Dump Control Subsystem
Abstract: The Coast Guard initiated a study to determine if a Dump Control Subsystem was feasible for use with an Ocean Dumping Surveillance System. This report contains a summary of the dump mechanisms on various Ocean Dumping vessels and recommended designs for Dump Control Subsystems.
Systems for Arctic Spill Response
Abstract: This final report summarizes the work accomplished under Phase I of the program entitled "Study to Define Arctic Pollution Response Systems and Develop Arctic Oil Pollution Response Project Plans."
Pleasure Boat Loading Related Accident Education
Abstract: This project deals with educational solutions to loading related pleasure boat accidents.
Educational Alternatives for Boating Safety Programs
Abstract: The Coast Guard has undertaken research to identify educational alternatives in its long term efforts to improve the safety of recreational boating.
Transfer, Installation and Flight Testing of the Modified Airborne Oil Surveillance System (AOSS II) in a HC-130B Aircraft
Abstract: The prototype airborne oil surveillance system (AOSS I) developed for the U.S. Coast Guard by Aerojet ElectroSystems under Contract DOT-CG-22170A was modified and transferred from a HU-16 aircraft to a HC-130B aircraft. The added capabilities of the new system configuration were verified by a flight test program.

Oceanographic Observations, North Atlantic Ocean Station ECHO: Terminal Report, 1966-1973
Abstract: Observed temperature and salinity data, plus sigma-t values and sound velocities are presented for 1620 oceanographic stations occupied by U.S. Coast Guard Cutters at Ocean Station ECHO from January 1969 through June 1973.
Oceanographic Observations: North Atlantic Standard Monitoring Sections A1, A2, A3, and A4, 1967-1968
Abstract: Seasonal variations in the Labrador Current are described using a defined Labrador Current Water together with geostrophic currents and salinity-temperature variations. The analysis is based on Standard Monitoring Sections occupied during 1967 and 1968 by U.S. Coast Guard cutters.
Study of Rescue Boat Performance for Selected Commercial Vessel Casualty Profiles
Abstract: A methodology is developed in this study for determining functional performance criteria for survival systems in general; it is illustrated, however, specifically for rescue boats.
