This report was developed largely by an Implementation Team in early 1992
(in alphabetical order - R. Beardsley, A. Bucklin, C. Davis, L. Incze,
J. Irish, G. Lough, D. Mountain, and P. Wiebe) and is based on extensive
prior discussions by larger groups of U.S. and Canadian scientists at
meetings held in Halifax, Nova Scotia in June 1990 (GLOBEC, 1991c) and
Cambridge, MA in July 1991. Useful input and review of early drafts of
this report was provided by: G. Gawarkiewicz, M. Huntley, G.
Paffenhöfer, T. Powell, C. Peterson, W. Peterson, and S. Smith and by
the U.S. GLOBEC Steering Committee. The final draft was reviewed
externally by K. Frank, M. Grosslein, P. LeBlond, J. Loder, W. Michaels,
D. Olson, I. Perry, P. Shelton, and K. Thomson, and three additional
anonomous reviewers. The final version was edited by W. Peterson, F.
Schwing, and the Implementation Team. The U.S. GLOBEC Scientific
Steering Committee gratefully acknowledges all of these significant
