Government agencies, notably the Navy but also others like Defense Intell, NSA and DEA, have conducted a great deal of research and funded much, perhaps even most, oceanographic research at universities since the 1940s. Is it legitimate to use public funds for research and to lock up the results by classifying them? How would you deal with a legitimate researcher who wants some particular classified data? Also, given the state of affairs in the world today do you think we still need to worry about investigating the oceans in terms of our national security? You may wish to search the Internet for info on this topic, but it is not necessary to do well on this question.
