    A laser method for the remote detection of oil present as a pollutant in the sea water using Raman backscattering and backscattered fluorescence is discussed. The scattering spectra of oils obtained by using a laser Raman spectrometer that employs a CW Ar laser are described. The backscattering spectra of oils obtained by a laser radar technique in the laboratory and the field are also described. ... View full abstract»

    This paper studies passive problems where the receiver extracts from the source radiated signature information concerning the parameters defining the relative source/receiver geometry. A model encompassing the fundamental global and local characteristics for passive positioning and navigation is presented. It considers narrow-band signals, imposes linear constraints on the geometry, and exhibits e... View full abstract»

    A numerical technique for mathematically modeling the steady-state and transverse dynamic motion of an underwater towed sonar array is presented. The transverse vibration response of the array is modeled using the finite difference method; the array itself is assumed to be nonneutrally buoyant and possesses a complex modulus and hence inherent damping. The results obtained from this model should p... View full abstract»

    The pressure tolerant TV (PTTV) camera is a significant advance in underwater TV cameras. Pressure tolerant means the camera is not protected from the ambient pressure, no matter at what depth it is operating. All the electronics, including the imager, and the lens are exposed to ambient pressure, though protected from the water in a fluid filled case. Though the PTTV camera is small (less than 7....

    An acoustic tracking technique for monitoring the motion of deep ocean moorings is described. The system uses Doppler phase shifts from bottom-moored beacons to resolve 3-cm motions. The motion of two intermediate depth moorings is presented. 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.
