in order to study the dynamics of far wakes of ships. In this experiment, a small boat with downward-looking sonar made " snakelike " sections through wakes of ships of opportunity during the TerraSAR-X overpasses. The ship and its parameters (length, speed, course, etc.) were identified utilizing an automated identification system. The sonar responded to(More)
Certain marine bacteria found in the near-surface layer of the ocean are expected to play important roles in the production and decay of surface active materials; however, the details of these processes are still unclear. Here we provide evidence supporting connection between the presence of surfactant-associated bacteria in the near-surface layer of the(More)
A pilot experiment was conducted by NSUOC and DLR in April-June 2008 in the Straits of Florida near Port Everglades, Florida in order to study the dynamics of far wakes of ships. In this experiment, a small boat with downward-looking sonar made " snake-like " sections through wakes of ships of opportunity during the TerraSAR-X overpasses. The ship identity(More)
