Sensor, Methods of Calibrating a Sensor, Methods of Operating a Sensor

A scour sensor and method of detecting scour in the bed of a body of water as well as a sensor and method for determining the subgrade modulus of a subgrade are provided. The scour sensor includes an elongated rod that can be driven into the bed of a body of water such that a portion of the rod is cantilevered from the bed into the water. The rod has a known dynamic characteristic that is variable depending on the amount of the rod that is embedded in the subgrade. In one implementation, the kno

Synthetic Structure for Asymmetric Eddies in the Ocean

A system and method is provided for an asymmetric formulation whereby multiple water masses mix together and generate an 'eddy-like' feature. Given the core and the shore profiles, embodiments produce a three-dimensional eddy representation for a particular ocean region based on three (core, inshore and offshore) specified profiles. The formulation employs parameter-based feature models and is generalized to ocean regions having asymmetric eddy water masses. Embodiments apply to regions in the g

The Ocean Surface Wave Identification and Tracking System (WITS)

APL-WAVES is a set of integrated software tools for the analysis and display of ocean surface directional wave data and related information. Custom wave partitioning and tracking tools provide comprehensive analyses and display of evolving wind sea and swell systems. APL-WAVES can be applied to directional wave spectra from any source including surface buoys, remote sensors, and computer simulations. Features: * A wide variety of wave data plotting options * Wave partitioning for quantifying win
