STABLE FLOATING PLATFORM. PART I. WAVE BREAKING IN DEEP WATER. PART II. ELECTROMAGNETIC ROUGHNESS OF THE OCEAN SURFACE. PART III

The semi-annual report reflects the technical status of projects conducted within the Advanced Ocean Engineering Laboratory at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. These projects are: Stable Floating Platform - to conceive, design, build and demonstrate the feasibility of large stable floating platforms in the open sea. Wave Breaking in Deep Water - a projected two-year laboratory and field investigation of the factors controlling the breaking of mixed-frequency wave systems in deep water. Electromagnetic Roughness of the Ocean Surface - utilization of radio signals scattered from the sea surface to determine the directional spectrum of ocean waves. (Modified author abstract)
