Abstract : The objective of this research is to identify open ocean and coastal water features appearing within photographs taken during U.S. Space Shuttle missions (1981-1991) and to investigate their geographic and temporal occurrences. In addition to a comprehensive review of these data, to be submitted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal, this work will culminate in a database of coastal and ocean photographic data that may be accessed with standard desk-top computer equipment and software. Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences will provide facility support and Dr. Steven C. Ackleson will perform the research.
