The article offers the author's views on the issues concerning the degradation of the U.S. oceanography's hardware including its manned deep-sea research submersibles. He states that the oceanography has experienced difficulties because the submersibles currently used by various services including the Navy are obsolete and their are no allocations from the government to procure modern technology. He cites that the Navy must increase its support in building new submersibles.
