Marine Science Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

The Ocean Engineering Handbook

edited by Ferial El-Hawary


  • Authoritative articles by leading experts

  • Cutting-edge technology advances

  • Pointers to future directions in research

  • Excellent bibliographies in each of the areas

  • Most complete and up-to-date table of contents

Compiled with the help of an internationally acclaimed panel of experts, the Ocean Engineering Handbook is the most complete reference available for professionals. It offers you comprehensive coverage of important areas of the theory and practice of oceanic/coastal engineering and technology.

Designed to be used as a traditional handbook, it thoroughly covers position control theory and implementations and offers a close look at the present state of ocean engineering.

With 200 tables and over 100 figures, The Ocean Engineering Handbook will give you a head start in many aspects of oceanic engineering.
