To increase the odds of recovery and rescue of airplane crash survivors in the Pacific, in 1942 the Army Air Forces initiated a contract with the Scripps Institution of Oceanography to design a series of Pacific area charts illustrating ocean currents and drift patterns. Harold Sverdrup designed an unidentified number of charts, some of which may have been printed on acetate rayon fabric and distributed to pilots and aircraft personnel. This chart was issued by the Naval Air Combat Intelligence, Hydrographic Office (NACI-HO).
