SURVEY OF THE USE OF FLASHING LIGHTS FOR MARINE SIGNALLING
Flashing lights are most frequently used as aids to marine navigation, both on inland and sea waterways. They are used in the form of lighthouse beacons and other lights on land and on water, light buoys and light ships. They serve the purposes of navigation, including the marking of shallows, reefs, wrecks etc. With the exception of the Morse code lights, flashing lights used on board of sea-going vessels are designed to identify certain types of craft or to indicate possible dangers. Flashing lights used on board inland waterway craft serve the purposes of navigation and also indicate certain dangers.
