The modern age of naval oceanography began in World War II with the recognition that an understanding of deep water oceanographic features was critical for both pro- and anti-submarine warfare. As naval systems have become more complex, there is an ever increasing dependence on knowledge of the environment. Scientific advances in oceanographic knowledge, global scale sensing capability and environmental models are giving fleet commanders, system developers and oceanographers the opportunity to understand the ocean and its impact on modern naval hardware. This knowledge will provide the Navy with a tactical oceanography capability and an ability to influence anti-submarine warfare tactics of the future.
