This handbook discusses the application of engineering techniques and scientific knowledge to the investigation of seafloor materials, their characteristics, and their response to foundation and mooring loads. Its primary thrust is with problems engineers will encounter beyond the continental shelf or below 600 foot water depth, but the information is also applicable to shallow water tasks.
