Abstract:

A recent theory of minimal-time ship routing through time-dependent ocean wave height and direction fields is put to a numerical test by using a series of semidaily analyses furnished by the U. S. Navy Fleet Numerical Weather Facility. The interpolations and integrations required are found to be feasible. A resume of the theory is given. Author
