Excerpt from Introduction to the National Oceanographic Data Center
A new dimension in interagency cooperation within the United States Government is represented by the establishment of the National Oceanographic Data Center (ncdc). Its sponsors include those agencies of government having a primary interest in the marine environment; namely, the Department of the Navy, the Coast and Geodetic Survey, the Bureau of Commercial Fisheries, the Weather Bureau, the Atomic Energy Commission, and the National Science Foundation. In addition to providing the funds for operation of the Center, each agency is represented on the National Oceanographic Data Center Advisory Board which determines the opera tiancl policies of the Center. The scientific com munity is represented by two individuals appointed by the National Academy of Sciences.
The spirit of cooperation between agencies has influenced the Data Center's relations with the international scientific community as well. The ncdc has fostered exchange programs with many nations; as of January I962, data exchange with one or more institutions in 18 countries and the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ices) has been inaugurated.
