Back Wave Attenuation by Bottom Friction on the Continental Shelf

Fiscal Year 2009
Division Graduate School of Engineering & Applied Science
Department Oceanography
Investigator(s) Herbers, Thomas H.C.
Sponsor Office of Naval Research (Navy)
Summary The objective of this research is to understand and predict the effects of sea floor morphology on the transformation of ocean waves across a continental shelf. Future Naval applications of the proposed work include remote sensing of seafloor properties to reduce uncertainties in planning for MCM, ASW, and expeditionary warfare in denied areas.
