Abstract:

The semi-annual 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 Electromagnetic Roughness of the Ocean Surface - use of radio signals scattered from the sea surface to determine the directional spectrum of ocean waves. 3 Advanced Studies in Nearshore Engineering - field studies of the water-sediment interface under wave action in and near the breaker zoneand laboratory investigation of the velocity field of breaking waves. 4 Wave Breaking In Deep Water - a projected two-year laboratory and field investigation of the factors controlling the breaking of mixed-frequency wave systems in deep water.
