Ship Motion Monitoring System

The natural environment of the earth is governed by energy circulation, and most of the natural energy is based on the radiant energy from the sun. Half of the energy from the sun is reflected by the surface of the earth as short-wave reflections and the remaining energy circulates in the atmosphere, in the ocean and in the land, until finally it is discharged out to cosmic space. The problems of the global environment originate in the relationship between the circulating energy and the energy consumed by human race. The ocean has a significant role in this energy circulation. The purpose of our laboratory is to pursue, using an engineering approach, the way the human race coexists with the natural environment of the earth from the view point of the ocean.
