Abstract
    The ultimate goal of the Programme for the Exploration of the Eastern Mediterranean (P.O.E.M.) is to reach a comprehensive knowledge of the physical, chemical, and biological oceanography of the eastern Mediterranean. Such a knowledge is an essential basis for environmental management, resource exploitation, and marine operations.The overall scientific objectives are (i) describe the physical phenomena and quantify their kinematics; (ii) define basic dynamical processes and (iii) construct physical models suitable for general ocean scientific studies and applications. This report on P.O.E.M. summarizes the scientific and practical objectives of the programme, delinates the elements of the scientific plan, the means of accomplishing the goals, and the schedule of events. It was developed from the substantial scientific planning workshop report 'Physical Oceanography of the Easteern Mediterranean, An Overview and Research Plan' UNESCO Report in Marine Science No. 30, at a meeting of the Organizing Committee held at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris on August 1984.
