Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This textbook is written for advanced high school classes, college and university entry-level courses, and the underwater technology enthusiast. Each chapter begins with a true scenario that sets the stage for the ocean science, physics, math, electronics, and engineering concepts that follow. The final chapter features step-by-step plans for building SeaMATE, a basic shallow-diving ROV. There is also a “What’s Next?” section that’s full of ideas for modifications and more complex underwater projects.

The 770-page informative text is enhanced by hundreds of photos, illustrations, and diagrams of underwater vehicles. In addition, the textbook includes a discussion of subsea vehicle development, resource appendices, an extensive glossary, and a complete index.
