Ocean Options meeting, January 7-10, 1991


Scope and Content Note

An international group of marine scientists, engineers, economists and attorneys from some two dozen institutions and agencies gathered at WHOI from January 7 to 10, 1991 to determine the research required to assess the potential of the deep ocean as a site for waste disposal. The 50 participants, led by Senior Scientist Derek Spencer, developed a research plan, which was reviewed by an independent panel later in the year. The series consists of recordings of the meeting sessions.
