McManus4 ABSTRAC T The education program of the American Meteorological Society established a unique partnership in 1994 with the United States Naval Academy and oceanographic agencies of both the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administra- tion and the U.S. Navy. This partnership, called the Maury Project, was formed to promote the study of the physical foundations of oceanography for precollege teachers.
