The shapes of spectra obtained from measurements of ocean turbulence are examined. Kovasznay's equation for high wave number turbulence is used to describe the inertial through dissipation regions. Power spectra of velocity fluctuation recorded in the open sea are used to evaluate constants occurring in the Kovasznay relation. Semi-empirical forms of high wave number energy spectra are then displayed. These computed spectra should define a universal form to which mathematical models should adhere.

Techniques and benefits of shaping the pulses of binary sequences with application to spread spectrum radio communications. Mavranganis, Panayiotis G. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1979-03);This research is concerned with binary sequences. Such two-level voltage waveforms are used in some types of spread spectrum systems. Of interest in this work is the effect of shaping the normally rectangular pulses of ...
