In this paper we summarize the results of three studies into the relations of marine scientists and "others." One study focused on the relations of U.S. marine scientists and their colleagues and policy makers in developing nations. Another looked at the interaction between oceanographers and policy makers in the United States, and how each side viewed the quality of the interaction. The third study was on the behavior of mariners and marine scientists toward one another, and their respective interpretations of the behavior. These three studies have serious implications for the future of science in general, and for marine science in particular.
