    A precise ocean bottom map for ocean surveying and dredging is desired. Especially in dredging, it is essential to know the seabed topography in real time without being affected by scatterers (for example floating sand and mud) in the seawater during work. To meet these requirements, the multi-narrow-beam sonar system (MBSS) has been developed. The MBSS forms beams with the use of the complex fast... View full abstract»

    Reanalysis of open-ocean eddy-correlation drag coefficients observed at Argus Island Tower near Bermuda indicates that near-neutral drag coefficients decrease with increasing mean horizontal wind velocity when the dominant (spectral peak) ocean wave phase velocity is much greater than the mean wind velocity. Near-neutral drag coefficients attain constant values when the dominant wave phase velocit... View full abstract»

    For the past several years the Marine Systems Engineering Laboratory (MSEL) has directed its efforts towards the development of the technologies required for unmanned untethered submersible vehicles. The current focus of those efforts is to develop a system architecture that will allow the implementation of a knowledge-based guidance and control system. The goal of this effort is to implement a si... View full abstract»

    During the 1982 invasion of southern Lebanon, the Israeli Air Force faced the problem of neutralizing the massive Syrian air defense network in the Bekka Valley as a step in gaining air control in the area. They accomplished this, in a matter of days, without the loss of a single aircraft, while inflicting a loss of over 80 aircraft on the Syrian Air Force. The key to this smashing tactical succes...

  • A comparison of the temperature coefficients of electrical conductivity of Atlantic and Pacific seawaters

    The Practical Salinity Scale 1978 (PSS) defines the relationship among salinity, electrical conductivity, temperature, and pressure. Strictly speaking, the PSS is only applicable to waters with the same relative chemical composition as standard seawater. We have tested the predictions of the PSS for samples of Atlantic and Pacific waters. The results indicate that the PSS is valid for these natura... View full abstract»

    Lisp has been the programming language of choice of most artificial intelligence (AI) researchers since the very early days of AI research. There are many reasons why this is so, some of which will be examined later in this paper, but perhaps the simplest reason is functional crispness. Every language has arbitrary features, and most languages have been overloaded with them in order to support div... View full abstract»

    "Expert systems" is a phrase that is widely used in today's literature to describe a technology that provides for emulating human reasoning processes in a computer. This paper attempts to clarify what the phrase expert systems means and briefly describes the underlying technology that is used to implement expert systems. View full abstract»

Aims & Scope

The IEEE Journal of Oceanic Engineering (ISSN 0364-9059) is the online-only quarterly publication of the IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society (IEEE OES). The scope of the Journal is the field of interest of the IEEE OES, which encompasses all aspects of science, engineering, and technology that address research, development, and operations pertaining to all bodies of water. This includes the creation of new capabilities and technologies from concept design through prototypes, testing, and operational systems to sense, explore, understand, develop, use, and responsibly manage natural resources.
