Abstract:

The book illuminates the application of aerial techniques in oceanologic and hydrographic investigations. Questions of aerial photography of the sea and the aerial survey process are examined and the existing aeromethods for studying ocean waves and currents and for determining the depths and mapping of ocean shallows are considered in detail. Electronic equipment and the methods of its application for measurement of spectral brightness of the sea from an aircraft are described. The publication is intended for photogrammetrists, hydrographers, and oceanologists occupied in the development and application of aeromethods for investigation of the oceans. The authors have generalized the results of works on the development and application of aeromethods in investigations of the ocean carried out mainly in the Laboratory of Aeromethods of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR. This latter circumstance has, to a considerable degree, determined the content and structure of the monograph, which therefore embraces only a part of the problems related to the considered region. Basic attention in the book is allotted to the methodology of studying ocean waves and currents, determining depth, charting shoal water, and measuring the spectral brightness of the sea. Author
