Ocean Exploration and the Use of Research in Oceanography

Nature and science have published research papers following heated discussions about whether the research findings in these papers could aid terrorists or other criminals in conducting effective attacks. When dealing with research that is concerned with national security, it is acceptable and legitimate to finance the studies and conceal the findings in order to protect the national interest (FAS, 2015).

Luckily, as people continued to understand how the chronometer works, the price reduced and today a very accurate digital watch can cost as little as 10 dollars(The Mariners’ Museum, 2015). I think the British government was fair not to classify the chronometer since they are still credited as pioneers of modern day navigation. Making the invention accessible and known to the world help to shape and revolutionize water travels and related activities.
