Abstract : This Manual presents a summary of the available present knowledge of those aspects of oceanography and coastal engineering which affect amphibious operations. The objective was to prepare a coordinated and consistent treatment of the subject for the benefit of officers engaged in planning or conducting amphibious operations. In so far as seemed feasible, a descriptive non-technical summary precedes the technical summary, but on some of the subjects, present knowledge is qualitative and only a single treatment was justified.
