The systematic application of the sciences of meteorology and oceanography to geophysical exploration problems is proposed as promising on the basis of successful experiences with these sciences in production operations. Potential applications are outlined wherein professional use of meteorology and oceanography proves superior to traditional dependence upon generalized governmental information or the hope that management will accept all losses resulting from environmental variations as acts of God. Exploitation of recent oceanographic advances in the revision of present sedimentation theories is suggested with the immediate aim of improving the understanding of stratigraphic traps and reefs.
