January/February 2014 MTS Journal (Vol. 48, No. 1): General Issue
This General Issue presents a broad range of topics of interest to the MTS community.
Four papers present ways to detect living organisms to facilitate minimization of human disturbances on those organisms and/or their particular habitats. Other papers describe a proof-of-concept for a human life-saving appliance that uses the characteristic radar cross-section of the human body; a Submerged Autonomous Launch Platform (SALP) that deploys Lagrangian instrumentation from moorings; algorithms incorporated into high precision Bottom Pressure Recorders (BPR) installed on the ocean floor for detecting tsunamis; use of high-resolution SAR images to aid navigation of China's icebreaker vessel, Xuelong, in polar fast ice; and the comparison of multiple regression and artificial neural network methods to predict wave transmission through a quarter circular breakwater.
