Abstract:

The objective of this study is to design and implement a data base of deepwater seaport characteristics within the Continental United States. Both military and civilian ports are considered. The study includes only general, container, roll-onroll-off cargo and petroleum and petroleum products. Data sources include verifiable and referenced documents. Data for the port data base are segregated into three groups port data, harbor data, and material handling equipment. Data grouping provides an added advantage for computer input and handling. The JRS2 Joint Reporting System-2 data base management system was created to manage the data base. It satisfies the basic requirements for data base query and continuous update and is cost-effective and convenient.
