Many potential seafloor structure locations consist of exposed rock or rock with a thin sediment cover. The design of a fixed, bottom-resting structure in such an environment poses a substantial problem because of the unevenness of the bearing surface and the usual accompanying strong currents. The report identifies probable locations of exposed and near-surface seafloor rock describes the rock surface microrelief or roughness and the rock mass integrity and examines and criticizes rock foundation concepts.
