    A wave-height meter using a simple microwave Doppler radar, \simeq 10 mW in power and 10.525 GHz in frequency, is proposed so that we can measure oceanic waves effectively while the ship is steaming. It was first applied to the measurement of the variation of water level generated in a wave tank, which suggested that it is adequately applicable to the measure... View full abstract»

    Shelf-mounted Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) plants require installation of cold-water pipes (CWP) on slopes of 40\deg to depths of 1000 m. In addition, tower platforms containing OTEC power systems may be located on lesser sloped terrain near shore and exposed to special environmental loading problems affecting foundation design. Shelf-mounted instal... View full abstract»

    From a long maritime past, the last two decades have presented the U.K. with new opportunities to explore and exploit the seas. A concentration on 'enabling technology' and integrated programs of work is now resulting in a much expanded capability to work in the oceans, on our own behalf, and with developing nations. This paper describes how the new capability has emerged, gives some examples of s... View full abstract»

    The results of a general theoretical investigation of three commonly used types of inductive conductivity sensors, i.e., the single transformer, the double transformer, and the double transformer with an additional loop, are presented. The resulting formulas describe the dependence of the sensor output signal not only on the conductivity of the seawater but also on the parameters of the electrical... View full abstract»

    Active Doppler sonar systems are gaining popularity as a method to profile remotely the oceanic velocity field. Estimation of the variance with which an ideal single.beam sonar system measures relative Doppler motion is the subject of this paper. Theoretical formulations, simulated reverberation data, and sea data are considered to determine this variance. The sea data considered in this paper wer... View full abstract»

    X -band synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery of the Goto Islands of Japan was digitally analyzed to extract air-sea interaction parameters and to assess the potential of texture measures in analysis of SAR ocean imagery. Wind direction is extracted from wind rows, wind streaks, and random turbulence patterns observed in the SAR imagery. Sea-state parameters ar... View full abstract»

  • Reciprocal acoustic transmissions: Instrumentation for Mesoscale monitoring of ocean currents

    By simultaneously transmitting acoustic pulses in opposite directions between two points in midocean, one can separate the effects of ocean currents on acoustic propagation from the effects of sound-speed structure. Reciprocal acoustic transmissions can therefore be used to measure ocean currents. Acoustic transceivers have been designed and built to measure the mean currents between two points se...

    Japan is a country of poor natural resources, limited land area, and frequent earthquakes. Therefore our government believes that the study and development of the ocean is very important, and has promoted various marine development policies. Meanwhile, under the direct control of the Science and Technology Agency (S.T.A), the Japan Marine Science and Technology Center (JAMSTEC) has promoted, since... View full abstract»

    Radar remote sensing of the ocean has been the subject of research for about 20 years. Spaceborne radar altimetry and scatterometry are approaching maturity, and synthetic-aperture radars (SAR) show great promise. The principles of radar scattering from the sea are outlined here, along with some recently discovered questions. For wind-vector scatterometry, the principle is presented, and remaining...
