On 29 April 1994, the Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter published a short report about the diplomatic contacts between Sweden and the United States concerning the activities of an American military ship in the Swedish economic zone.' According to the report, the USNS Kane had some three weeks previously carried out surveys in the Swedish economic zone somewhere between the islands of Gotland and Oland. The purpose had been to study currents and other water movements on the bottom of the sea. According to the report, the Swedish coastguard had suspected marine scientific research, which required prior notification.2 The staff on the Kane had responded that the activity was in fact survey, which is distinct from marine scientific research. The military status of the vessel was also invoked as a justification of the military nature of the activity. The coastguard reported the Kane's activity to the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs, which had contacted the American authorities for explanation. The Kane had left the Swedish economic zone after the completion of her mission.
