PRINCIPLES OF FORMATION OF CORPORATE CULTURE OF MARINE CREW

Abstract

The article is devoted to the issues of corporate culture. The article tells about the changes in the external and internal environment of organizations, which were of interest to such a phenomenon as corporate culture. The general principles of formation of corporate culture have been reviewed, which are basic for the culture of marine crew, whose activities are determined by specific conditions. The necessity to increase corporate spirit as an important factor of efficient work of the crew is emphasized. Several directions in the work of captain and his assistants are considered, which promote the creation of corporate spirit: shaping a vision (team philosophy) and a favorable social-psychological climate on the ship, creation and improvement of communication language.

Keywords

corporate culture, external environment of organization, internal environment of the organization, team philosophy, marine crew, corporate spirit, social-psychological climate, communication language

THE 200th ANNIVERSARY OF ADMIRAL GENNADY I. NEVELSKOY

Abstract

The present article covers cultural and patriotic events devoted to the 200th anniversary of Admiral Gennady I. Nevelskoy, commemorated on December 5, 2013. Admiral Nevelskoy was famous explorer of the Far East of Russia, who proved that Sakhalin was an island, discovered the entrance to the mouth of the Amur River and founded military post there. As a result of his work vast territory of high strategic importance was annexed to Russia. Congratulation letters by A.N.Kukel-Kraevsky, great-grandson of Admiral Gennady I. Nevelskoy and Patricia Polansky, Russian Bibliographer of Hamilton Library University are also published.

Efficiency in the management of ship crews

Abstract

The article describes basic principles of organization and management of teams, operating in extreme conditions and limited space. As an example of such a team the crew of sea vessel may be designated. The ways to improve the efficiency of the crew, the role of its members and leaders in the process of implementation of job tasks are examined and reviewed.

Keywords

management, efficiency, cohesion, performance, potential, relationship, the ship's crew, interaction, interchangeability, mutual complementarity, mutual support.

The Geopolitics of Seas and the Cartography of Naming Seas: The Name “Sea of Japan” Reflecting an Imperialist Ideology

Abstract

Japan asserts that many Western countries have designated the name of the corresponding waters as Sea of Japan for a long period of time, and rationalizes its position by stating that the current name "Sea of Japan" was settled on the basis of this recognition in the first half of the twentieth century. Analyzing data from earlier maps, there appear to be many problems regarding Japan's assertion. For example, the name "Sea of Japan," which appears in western maps, is but one name that has been used. Various other names such as "Sea of Korea" and "Mer Orientale(Eastern Sea)" may be seen, and dual name usage such as "Sea of Korea/Sea of Japan," "Sea of Korea/Eastern Sea," and others are found. As Japan registered the name of the sea east of Korea as "Sea of Japan" with the International Hydrographic Organization in 1929, during its colonial rule of Korea, the name of the sea east of Korea came to disappear from maps. Japan's ambition for expansion was noticeably expressed in cartography, too. In 1945, Japan was defeated, gave up its territorial ambition in the Pacific Ocean. This study examines naming from the perspective of the geopolitics of oceans and of the cartography of sea names. It focuses on names for that sea that were removed in the early twentieth century and on how the name "Sea of Japan" became the international standard through an uncommon method during the Japanese rule of Korea. In particular, this paper addresses the war in the Asia-Pacific region and pursues the influence of the geopolitical situation upon the cartography of sea names beyond the research scope that has focused on the maritime area east of Korea. Today, the Republic of Korea, which lost the name of the sea during the Japanese colonial period, is endeavoring to restore the name "East Sea," which was lost due to colonialism, to the body of water between Korea and Japan.

UNDERWATER ROBOT INTELLIGENT CONTROL BASED ON MULTILAYER NEURAL NETWORK

Abstract

The chapter is devoted to the design of the intelligent neural network based control systems for underwater robot. New algorithm for intelligent controller learning is derived with usage of speed gradient method. Proposed systems provide the robot dynamics close to reference one. Simulation results of neural network control systems for underwater robot dynamics with parameter and partial structural uncertainty have confirmed perspectives and effectiveness of approach developed.

Keywords

underwater robot, control, uncertain dynamics, multilayer neural network speed gradient method.

Cylinder Oil Dosage in Marine Slow Speed Diesel Engines

Abstract

The sound decision of question about cylinder oil consumption rates for ship’s slow speed diesel engines requires deep and all-round engineer competence in all aspects of big and important problem, which can influence on friction and abrasion inside the cylinder. As well the article offers to consider more fully the increase and reduction of propeller characteristic.

Keywords

slow-speed diesel, lubricators, partial loads, cylinder oil consumption rates, propeller characteristic, relative load coefficient of the ship’s propulsion complex

MARINE FLOATING WIND PARK

Abstract

Part II of the Author’s cycle devoted to marine renewable energy and design of coastal and deep sea power plants (Part I see ‘Asia-Pacific Journal of Marine Science & Education’.Vol. 1, No.1, pp.43-50). A detailed design of proposed powerful floating wind park is described in this paper. The specific features of this project provide long term reliable operations in distant places, high wave and ice resistance and competitive cost – efficiency ratio. Moreover, this class of plants not only produces electricity but helps to clean and rehabilitate polluted coastal waters.

Keywords

wind energy, semi-submersible wind farm, wind turbine, ice protection, pontoon floats, underwater cable.

SATELLITE REMOTE SENSING USING FOR ANALYSING OF CHLOROPHYLL – “A” CONCENTRATION CHANGES DURING TROPICAL CYCLONES PASSING IN NORTH-WESTERN PACIFIC.

Abstract

The satellite ocean color data of CZCS, OCTS, SeaWiFS, MODIS-Aqua and data of the Japan Meteorological Agency about tropical cyclones (TC) trajectories, wind speeds and area of TC influence were used in the study. In the gross, the data allow to analyze the influence of 123 TC-s on the chlorophyll-“a” concentration in 1389 areas during 1979-1986 and 1996-2010, and influence of 135 TC-s on the sea surface temperature (SST) in 1412 areas during 2002-2010. It was shown that chlorophyll-“a” concentration increases in 81% of cases, SST decrease in 76%. The most probable change of chlorophyll-“a” concentration is +18%; of SST is -3%. Growth of phytoplankton cells is observed at the 2nd-4th day after TC passing and continues about 2 weeks. Specificity of satellite data using in such chlorophyll-“a” analysis is also discussed in the study.

HISTORIC ORIGIN OF EAST SEA OF KOREA AND CRIMINAL CHARACTER OF YAVING MARKED “SEA OF JAPAN”

Abstract

The article explains on the basis of some historical documents that designation of East Sea of Korea as “Sea of Japan” is the criminal product of the Japanese invasion and colonial rule over Korea in the past and a violent distortion of the historical facts.

The text of article is published unchanged as it was compiled by the Author with expressions, citations and English variants of geographical names used in Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. So, the most widely known form of “Tok Islet” is “Dokdo Island”.

Keywords

East sea of Korea, Japan, maps, Europe, history and geography, Pacific Ocean
