Abstract:

Our long-term goal is to set up a database of ocean internal waves observed from US space shuttles. Each case includes photographs, interpretation maps, quantitative data and information extracted from images, and boundary conditions collected by in situ measurements. The database will be publicly accessible. Users, who are interested in ocean internal waves, may search for the information they need through the network. The objectives that pertain to 1998 are to develop or adopt methods for setting up the database specifically suited for space shuttle photography, to design a home page for the data base and a standard format for an individual case to be stored in the data base, and to collect data and interpretation results, which will be used as basic material for the data base.
