    During the West Coast Experiment in March 1977, a test was conducted to ascertain the effectiveness of using remote sensing techniques to estimate sea surface temperature (SST) from infrared (IR) emissions of the sea surface. Aircraft flights were made over three buoys moored in southern California coastal waters, and data was collected of sea surface emissions at thermal IR wavelengths ( View full abstract»

    A model for computing microwave emissivity of a wind-driven foam-covered sea is presented. The effect of roughness and foam is modeled by combining early measurement results and theoretical analysis. Recent Seasat-SMMR measurements are used to fine tune the model and derive an "effective" fractional foam coverage expression in terms of frequency and wind speed. The model incorporates polarization ... View full abstract»

    A time domain synthetic reflection seismogram is detailed and, as a limiting condition on this model, the analytic reflection impulse response for a one-dimensional lossless acoustic medium with piecewise continuous acoustic impedance is obtained. This analytic impulse response solution, in the structure of a sum of terms by order of reflection, provides insight to some of the poorly understood as... View full abstract»

    A timing subsystem consisting of an N -point finite impulse response (FIR) digital differentiator followed by an M -step adaptive linear predictor is described. The techniques may be employed for initial timing acquisition and subsequent resynchronization of ASK, FSK, and PSK digital communications systems employing pilot si... 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.
