This informal 33-year budget history reconstruction was done by Adair Montgomery and Julian Shedlovsky for the period up to the mid-1980s. Please read components Oceanographic Facilities and Ships (OFS) and the Ocean Drilling Program (ODP), and its pre-cursors. The ''OCE, total" are the estimated funds "A Chronology" by Michael Reeve in this volume for details regarding the sub-components of this table. Program, Section, and Division names are the of all the program components, which became identified with the present-day Division of Ocean Sciences (OCE). Although these totals represent a rough present-day names. At the end of the International Decade of Ocean Exploration (IDOE), the funds were appropriately merged into the corresponding estimate of NSF expenditures in marine-related fields, they are a minimum estimate because they do not include any expenditures in other branches of NSF, programs of the Ocean Sciences Research Section (OSRS). The Oceanographic Centers and Facilities Section (OCFS) is tracked in this table by its two sub-such as Polar Programs or programs within the present-day Directorate for Biosciences in the area of marine biology.
