Maint_ Assign_ 1970-1971r.jpg (91981 bytes) Oceanographic Unit Three Maintenance Assignments, 1970-1971.

OcUnit3 is desperately short of techs during this period. There are 14 techs for both watchstanding and maintenance.  It was during this period that OcUnit3 went to 3 watches of 6hr each, with  a 6hr workday.  For diurnal primates controlled by a 24hr circadian rhythm, this was metabolically disruptive.  But...who knew?
