Abstract:

This paper addresses itself to current-day technical problems that must be solved in order to provide up-to-date, comprehensive information to navigators of river craft. Such problems include rapid fluctuating water levels, frequent changes in channel depth, common occurrences of man-made obstructions, and difficulties associated with navigating small craft in a strange, often hostile area with ill-defined navigational aids, particularly during nighttime hours.
