Riding the wave

In an age where man-made systems have become ubiquitous, renewable resources have gained an essential role and people from different backgrounds are working together to find environmental-friendly solutions, the ocean is receiving special attention. Looking at ocean waves, nobody would doubt that they could be a useful source of power, besides a natural phenomenon to observe with astonishment or even awe. 

In order to foster research on how to increase the capability of resource exploitation and space utilization in the ocean, and how to protect the same from the negative effects of human intervention, Springer has put together a selection of books, chapters & full issues tackling some of the greatest issues currently being addressed within the interdisciplinary field of ocean engineering. 

Access selected research FREE between May 1st - June 15th, 2019. 

Q & A with Prof. R. Cengiz Ertekin

Ertekin © Springer​​​​​​​In order to find out a little more about the field of Ocean Engineering, we approached Dr. R. Cengiz Ertekin, Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Ocean Engineering and Marine Energy is what he had to say: 

What is Ocean Engineering?
Ocean Engineering is an interdisciplinary field of engineering that may encompass many traditional engineering and science fields including naval architecture and oceanography, and mechanical, civil and electrical engineering. In the early 1960s, there was a need to establish an engineering field focusing on the engineering of the oceans beyond the classical naval architecture, ...

Development and Testing of Navigation Algorithms for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles

© Springer

This book focuses on pose estimation algorithms for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs). After introducing readers to the state of the art, it describes a joint endeavor involving attitude and position estimation, and details the development of a nonlinear attitude observer that employs inertial and magnetic field data and is suitable for underwater use. In turn, it shows how the estimated attitude constitutes an essential type of input for UKF-based position estimators that combine position, depth, and velocity measurements.

New Book: Motion Sickness

© Springer

This book offers a survey of the state of the art in the field of motion sickness. It begins by describing the historical background and the current definition of motion sickness, then discusses the prevalence among individuals, along with the physiological and psychological concomitants of the disorder. It reviews the incidence of motion sickness in numerous provocative motion environments and discusses various personal factors that appear to influence this aspect.
