  1. To review current technologies that may be suitable for measuring chemical and biological properties with high resolution in time and space.

  2. To assess which of these technologies holds most promise for wide spread deployment as oceanographic probes in the next five years.

  3. To evaluate ways in which the data from such probes can be calibrated, standardized and integrated into the data base from standard hydrographic instruments.
