    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (470 KB)

    Ocean environmental relations between the industrial North and the developing South are considered. The first issue is whether multiple environmental standards for ocean pollution abatement, less stringent for poor countries, are economically rational. Multiple standards are generally more efficient, but it does not follow that developing countries should always choose lower standards than wealthi... View full abstract»

    A very extensive vane shear testing program of sediments from potential manganese nodule mining areas was conducted in 1975 during Leg III of NOAA's DOMES program. This effort was performed in conjunction with planned USGS studies. Replicate vane shear tests were made on 51 large box cores recovered from the three DOMES study sites A, B, and C. The statistically designed coring program (nested typ... View full abstract»

    Since shortly after the first submarine telegraph cable installations in the early 1800's, underwater power cables have been implanted and used. Initial acceptance and use of such cables was slow, however, and only accellerated in the past half-century with the replacement of natural rubber insulations. This paper will look into many of the considerations involved in the installation and utilizati... View full abstract»

    A method for stress and torque analysis of a steel armored Electromechanical mooring cable is presented and is compared with test results. The cable studied in this paper has an electrical core around which is helical wound two layers of armor. When the armor wires are loaded they develop torque and rotate. They also move radially; the amount of movement depends on the core hardness. This paper wi... View full abstract»

    Torque-free operation is an essential performance requirement in today's ocean cable constructions. Torsional information is needed to properly select, design and specify cables. The fastest and most economical way of obtaining such information is by model simulations. Several models have recently been developed for specific purposes. One of these models, the helical model TAWAC developed by CEL, ... View full abstract»

    This paper reports on the development of a Marine Radar Interrogator-Transponder (MRIT). Unfortunately, all vessel paints on a radar PPI look alike. As a result, when a ship master caught in a fog is trying to use his radio-telephone to work out a maneuvering plan with another vessel, it is difficult for him to identify which blip on the PPI is the source of the voice on the radio. One solution no... View full abstract»
