Abstract:

The report reflects the technical status of projects conducted within the Advanced Ocean Engineering Laboratory at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. These projects are 1 Stable Floating Platform - to conceive, design, build and demonstrate the feasibility of large stable floating platforms in the open sea. 2 Benthic Array - a program to develop and construct a quartz vertical accelerometer appropriately packaged and adapted for long term ocean bottom use. 3 Overpressures Due to Earthquakes - a study of earthquakes and resultant overpressures as they may effect oceangoing vehicles and subsurface structures. 4 Advanced Studies in Nearshore Engineering - field studies of the water-sediment interface under wave action in and near the breaker zone and laboratory investigation of the velocity field of breaking waves. 5 Electromagnetic Roughness of the Ocean Surface - concerns utilization of radio signals scattered from the sea surface to determine the directional spectrum of ocean waves.
