The primary objective of this report is to present and analyze those studies that have been conducted to determine the effects of motion and motion sickness on human performance aboard vessels at sea. To accomplish this, a comparison between the motions experienced aboard several types of monohull vessels and the simulated motions of a 2,000 tons generic surface effect ship will be made. Background information concerning motion sickness and recommendations for future studies are also presented.
