    Since the summer of 1971, the NOAA Data Buoy Office has deployed numerous environmental moored data buoys possessing automated data acquisition and over-the horizon telemetry features. These buoys have been deployed off the east and west coast of the United States and in the Gulf of Mexico and Alaska. As of summer 1977, between fifteen to twenty synoptic environmental reporting buoys located in th... View full abstract»

  • Design of moored buoy system in shallow waters

    Publication Year: 1977, Page(s):11 - 16
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (369 KB)

    Surface moored data buoys have been deployed in shallow waters in the East China Sea and the Adriatic Sea to provide meteorological and oceanographic data for use in weather forecasting and climatological studies. The buoys are of thick discus hull configuration with a diameter from 6.1 to 10 meters. The extreme conditions of large waves, high current and shallow water depth create a design proble...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (383 KB)

    An inexpensive telemetry data buoy system has been developed. The telemetry link is made via an HF ground wave. Ten channels of data are collected from each of seven buoys and transmitted with 8-bit accuracy and quadruple redundancy once every 15 minutes in a frequency-shift-keyed format. The data are received and recorded on cassettes with a commercial grade recorder. Manual servicing of the reco... View full abstract»

    This paper describes the design, operation and testing of an ocean wave height sensor based on the measurement of wave-related barometric pressure variations. The work was done under the auspices of the NOAA Data Buoy Office (NDBO). Wave theory used and design of circuits to convert the continuous analog wave height signal to significant wave height, peak wave height and average wave period are de... View full abstract»

  • A microprocessor-based oceanographic particle data collection system

    Publication Year: 1977, Page(s):32 - 35
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (554 KB)

    An instrument has been developed for oceanographic sampling of particle density and size versus depth and temperature in a 100 meter water column. The sensor probe, although attached to a lightweight cable, is allowed to free fall, which effectively detaches it from the motion of the sampling platform and enhances the resolution of thin particle layers. Sensor information is transmitted up the cab... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (1459 KB)

    A microcomputer has been adapted for use with a flow-through anodic stripping voltammetry (ASV) instrument developed by the Naval Ocean Systems Center (NOSC). The ASV instrument was originally developed to provide near-real-time analysis of trace metals in seawater. Four years experience with this system in the coastal waters of Florida, Peru and California showed that many ancillary instruments s... View full abstract»

    Numerous environmental groups, scientists and humanists have gone on record concerning that incomparable biological resource, the coral reefs and limestone islands of Palau. The Trust Territory, which governs Micronesia, is due to be dissolved in 1981 but there is little economic base for independence. Its strategic location, remoteness and low population have led to Palau as a potential site for ... View full abstract»

    Education means change of behavior. Ideally, education moves the individual from lack of interest and ignorance to increasing appreciation and knowledge and finally to action. The development of coastal areas and marine resources will be influenced by how well our society understands coastal and marine affairs. Since attitudes and values develop very early in life, it follows that school children ... View full abstract»

    The USS DOLPHIN (AGSS-555) is the U. S. Navy's deep-diving research submarine designed to test advanced submarine structures, sensors, weapons and machinery systems. Purely experimental in nature, she serves as a platform for scientific investigation at unprecedented depths for a fully operational and independent submarine. Utilizing its large payload (over 11 metric tons) and highly versatile ins... View full abstract»

    The Department of Interior's EROS Data Center, managed by the U.S. Geological Survey, was established in 1972, in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, to serve as a principal dissemination facility for Landsat and other remotely Sensed data. Through the middle of 1977, the Center has supplied approximately 1.7 million copies of images from the more than 5 million images of the Earth's surface archived at th... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (1686 KB)

    For more than a decade the Deep-Tow group of the Marine Physical Laboratory has been developing acoustic systems for near-bottom geophysical studies of the deep sea floor. A major aim of this work has been the detailed measurement of those properties of the sea floor which affect acoustic propagation. Such properties include the slope of the bottom, the acoustic reflectivity of the sea floor and o... View full abstract»

  • Specialized drive waveforms for the parametric acoustic source

    Publication Year: 1977, Page(s):98 - 101

    In addition to its narrow beamwidth and wideband capability, the underwater parametric acoustic source has the advantage of maintaining a relatively constant beamwidth over a wide range of difference frequencies. However, for some applications the beamwidth of the difference frequency is narrower than desired or adjustable beamwidth is required. This paper describes techniques by which the beamwid...

    It is well known that the coherency content of acoustic signals propagated in the ocean has been exploited in signal processing schemes to enhance the signal-to-noise performance of sonar systems. Currently, acoustic imaging techniques which rely on coherency are being developed. Recently, some of these techniques have passed from laboratory curiosities to hardware systems. Two such applications a... View full abstract»

    Oceanic education is not an idea whose time has come. At least not for large numbers of Americans. That seems clear enough to me after spending a year developing, promoting and administering a national mass oceanic education project in1 975-76. It is argued that when there was a major opportunity to promote oceanic education among millions of Americans in the Fall of 1976, those most involved with... View full abstract»

    Although the general field of marine sciences has received considerable attention over the past 15 years, institutions in a number of different countries still find it difficult to provide modern facilities for training and research and, consequently, lack trained individuals to deal with the ever-increasing problems and pressures of coastal development and pollution. Over the past four years, the... View full abstract»
