Paper Abstract

When THRESHER sank on April 10, 1963 the NRL group, which joined the search, had never taken a single ocean floor photograph. Seven years and ten deep ocean searches later this same group has taken more bottom photographs than all others added together. During this period tremendous advances have been made. This paper reviews these advances and makes some projections for the future.
