Malacostraca in surface plankton were used as indicators for Atlantic and Arctic waters. Benthic Amphipoda from Hornsund Fjord also were used as indicator organisms. Based on both groups of bioindicators, the SOrkapp (South Cape) Current was found to be of Atlantic origin (arising locally in East Spitsbergen) and not of Arctic origin as previously reported.

Oceanographic Commission] data and informa- tion exchange. Implications of the Law of the Sea Convention. Mar. Poficy, 7(2):75-89.
There are dozens of implicit and explicit references to information exchange in the U.N. Law of the Sea Draft Convention. This article addresses the ques- tion of how the International Oceanographic Com- mission, via its International Oceanographic Data Exchange Programme, should respond. In general, the Convention will require an expansion of ex- change activity, but at levels higher than that of data per se--levels which involve analysis and the transmission of knowledge. An appendix lists LOS references to information exchange. Univ. of Wash- ington, Seattle, Wash. 98105, USA. (fcs)

F170. Engineering and industry
84:6331 Colwell, R.R. et al., 1984. [Industry and the oceans.]
Oceanus, 27(1):2-45; 7 papers.
This special issue focuses on positive efforts to use the seas benignly. While noting that this positive emphasis may 'partially rectify the imbalance' of many scientific papers and lay press reports that stress problems with ocean dumping, coastal zone development, etc., the editor points out that some of the included papers are equally biased as they fail to mention any negative aspects or the complexities of the issues. The 7 contributions discuss applications of genetic engineering to marine science; the use of a Limulus extract to detect bacterial endotoxins; California kelp harvesting; salmon ranching; the oceanographic equipment industry; the potential of surimi gel, a protein from fish waste, as a food product; and using waste heat from a power plant to raise striped bass fingerlings.

Ocean Sci. Engng, 9(!):1-23.
The design and operation of marine structures are significantly affected by wind wave climate. As instrumental data sets are too short in duration and too few, hindcasting is a preferred method for assessing wave climate, particularly when extremes must be estimated. Occasionally, visual observation may be used for wave climate assessment. Mar. Tech. Center, Haakon Haakonsonsgt. 34, P.O.B. 4125, Valentinlyst N-7001, Trondheim, Norway. 0ch)

U.S. and international regulations. Mar. Poficy, 7(2):90-100.
This article examines the environmental impact of floating nuclear power plants (FNP's), changes in U.S. regulation following the Three Mile Island accident, and recent U.S. court decisions. References in the Law of the Sea Convention relevant to FNP's are outlined and the current status of international law on the subject is analyzed. 350 Commerce West, 1206 South Sixth St., Univ. of Illinois, Champaign, Ill. 61820, USA.
