Abstract:

The Naval Ocean Research and Development Activity inaugurated a series of oceanographic workshops during the fall of 1979 covering various topics in ocean science and technology. These workshops were sponsored by the Chief of Naval Research. On 13-15 November 1979, a workshop entitled Describing Ocean Phenomena Using Coherent Radars was held at NSTL Station, Miss. Leading workers in both hydrodynamics and electromagnetic scattering came together to discuss the status of relevant scattering theories, the kinds and reliability of data obtained with different sensor systems, and the hydrodynamics information extractable from these data. In the material contained within this technical note, the invited talks and plenary session are summarized along with the presentation of the reports of the working groups. During the interval between the conclusion of the workshop and the publication of these proceedings, many papers that were in preparation or had been submitted to journals subsequently appeared in print. For completeness, these later references have been cited. A sample of the give-and-take interplay that occurred throughout the workshop may be found in the Open Discussion at the end of this report.
