DENNIS THE MENACE Hutehinson News Friday, Oct. 1, 1971 Page 12 * LEAVE A BMPT/ PIACE WHEK£ I CAM KISSWU<3O0D-NK3HT.' Study Sea Pollution LA JOLLA, Calif. (AP) Oceanographers have launched man's most extensive study of pollution far at sea and of little- understood rivers of cold water that affect circulation in the deeps. TTiey say it is becoming increasingly urgent for man to learn the limits on his ultimate use of the oceans, and whether such activities as dumping wastes might someday alter circulation and cause regional o r even global weather changes. Experts at Scripps Institute of Oceanography, one of seven universities and institutions joining in the $8-million, four- year study, say recent tests in the South Pacific of a key research instrument were better than expected. The instrument automatically measures water temperature, depth and salt content, feeding the data into a computer. Top To Bottom It will measure these variables from ocean surface to bottom at 120 stops during cruises along north-south tracks in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans. The data will enable scientists to map the rivers of deep cold water. More than 5,000 samples will be collected during two years of cruises and analyzed for natural and manmade radioactivity. The radioactivity levels will serve as sensitive "clocks," indicating how far a pollutant has traveled since it entered the ocean. To Clock Currents Atmospheric tests of nuclear weapons, for example, introduced radioactive elements into the sea unique to many of the detonations. Tracing movement of these elements will tell how fast currents move and how quickly contaminants on the ocean surface find their way into the deep currents. Combining this data, the sci entists hope eventually to predict how fast and in what directions a pollutant will spread from any depth or location during hundreds or even thousands of years. The answers about pollution are needed most urgently, Joe Reid, a Scripps oceanographer, said in an interview. "We're essentially operating in a vacuum as far as ocean pollution is concerned," he said. "Ecologists tell us terrible tales of ocean pollution but they cannot really justify what they're saying. On the other hand, one can't prove them wrong. There's always the pos sibility things are even worse than we think." Understanding ocean circulation is important because many experts believe it plays a major role in determining regional and global weather.
