Compiled by an internationally acclaimed panel of experts, this is the most complete reference of its kind. It provides comprehensive coverage of important areas of the theory and practice of oceanic/coastal engineering and technology. The well-organized text includes five major sections: Marine Hydrodynamics and Vehicles Control, Modeling Considerations, Position Control Systems for Offshore Vessels, Applications of Computational Intelligence in the Ocean's Environment, and Fiber Optics in Oceanographic Applications. Designed as a traditional handbook, it offers a detailed look ocean engineering, including thorough coverage of position control theory and implementation.
