U.S. scientists working in Soviet water

For the first time in 10 years, the Soviet Union has granted a U.S. research vessel permission to enter the Soviet Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) -- a 200-mile-wide border around Soviet coastlines. The research ship Thomas Washington from the Scripps Institute of Oceanography in La Jolla, Calif., is spending three weeks in the region between the Aleutian Islands and the Kamchatka Peninsula and will be operating in both the Soviet and U.S. EEZs as well as in international waters. Two Soviet geoscientists have joined the research crew for this voyage.
