, the OFFICER IN TACTICAL COMMAND (OTC) is the naval officer exercising tactical command of a group of ships in a tactical formation such as a task unit , task group, or task force . Ships travelling together on a specific mission might have one of the commanding officers designated OTC. On occasion, an officer senior to the ships' captains (a senior captain, a commodore, or an admiral) will be embarked specifically to take command of the formation, and in this case, he or she will exercise the function of OTC. PURPOSE OF THE OTCThe purpose of the OTC is to provide authority and direction for actions the group is to take in the course of assigned operations and to communicate the information to higher authorities. LIMITATION OF AUTHORITYIn port, under peaceful circumstances where there is no tactical situation, the senior officer present afloat (SOPA) assumes certain roles associated with the OTC. The OTC is only empowered to direct the forces assigned to him or her for the specific purposes designated by the officer exercising operational command over the formation. The OTC may not reassign forces assigned to him or her for another purpose. REFERENCESThis article incorporates text from the public domain Dictionary of American Naval Fighting Ships .

Commanding Officer
The COMMANDING OFFICER (CO) or, if the incumbent is a general officer , COMMANDING GENERAL (CG), is the officer in command of a military unit . Typically, the commanding officer has ultimate authority over the unit, and is usually given wide latitude to run the unit as he or she sees fit, within the bounds of military law . In this respect, commanding officers have significant responsibilities (for example, the use of force, finances, equipment, the Geneva Conventions ), duties (to higher authority, mission effectiveness, duty of care to personnel), and powers (for example, discipline and punishment of personnel within certain limits of military law). In some countries, commanding officers may be of any commissioned rank. Usually, there are more officers than command positions available, and time spent in command is generally a key aspect of promotion, so the role of commanding officer is highly valued, and in theory, only goes to the best officers. The commanding officer is often assisted by an executive officer (XO) or second-in-command (2i/c), who handles personnel and day-to-day matters and a senior enlisted advisor . Larger units may also have staff officers responsible for various responsibilities

Senior Officer Present Afloat
SENIOR OFFICER PRESENT AFLOAT, usually referred to as SOPA, is a U.S. Navy term to indicate the U.S. Navy officer, with the highest ranking by rank, or number in rank, present in a harbor occupied by more than one U.S. Navy vessel. That officer is essentially commander of all U.S. Navy operations afloat in the harbor and is responsible to civilian authorities for the action of the ships and the behavior of crews under his or her command. SOPA is a useful administrative function in foreign ports visited by U.S. Navy vessels. However, SOPA may also be established in continental U.S. ports. CONTENTS * 1 Examples of SOPA assignment * 2 Example of use * 3 SOP(A) * 4 References EXAMPLES OF SOPA ASSIGNMENT * A U.S. Navy minesweeper enters the harbor of Sasebo , Japan , where there are a number of U.S. Navy destroyers at anchor. The captain of the minesweeper is a lieutenant commander who, informed by message beforehand as to who is SOPA, must report to the higher-ranking SOPA, a commander, located on one of the destroyers. The SOPA will assign the minesweeper instructions as to where to anchor or dock, and instruct the minesweeper on guard duty, mail runs, boat runs, radio watch, signal light watch, liberty procedures, shore patrol assignments, and other assigned shared duties. * A cruiser with a higher-ranking Navy officer, such as a captain, enters the same port

Public Domain
The term PUBLIC DOMAIN has two senses of meaning. Anything published is out in the public domain in the sense that it is available to the public . Once published, news and information in books are in the public domain, although they may also be copyrighted. In the sense of intellectual property, works in the public domain are those whose exclusive intellectual property rights have expired, have been forfeited, have been expressly waived, or are inapplicable. For example, the works of Shakespeare
Shakespeare
and Beethoven , and most of the early silent films , are all now in the public domain by either being created before copyrights existed or leaving the copyright term . Examples for works not covered by copyright which are therefore in the public domain, are the formulae of Newtonian physics , cooking recipes , and all software before 1974. Examples for works actively dedicated into public domain by their authors are reference implementations of cryptographic algorithms , NIH 's ImageJ
ImageJ
, and the CIA
CIA
's _World Factbook_ . The term is not normally applied to situations where the creator of a work retains residual rights, in which case use of the work is referred to as "under license" or "with permission". As rights are country-based and vary, a work may be subject to rights in one country and be in the public domain in another

The _DICTIONARY OF AMERICAN NAVAL FIGHTING SHIPS_ (_DANFS_ for short) is the official reference work for the basic facts about ships used by the United States Navy .

If the ship was not assigned a name it was not included in the histories written for the series. In addition to the ship entries, _DANFS_ and the online links have been expanded to include appendices on small craft, histories of Confederate Navy ships, and various essays related to naval ships.

The 1983 ATLANTIC HURRICANE SEASON was the least active Atlantic hurricane season in 53 years. Although the season begins by convention on June 1, there were no tropical depressions until July 23, and only four of the season's seven depressions became tropical storms . Tropical Depression Three became Hurricane Alicia_(satellite image pictured)_ on August 17 and made landfall in Texas the next day, breaking thousands of glass windows in Houston's skyscrapers, killing 22 people and causing $1.7 billion in damage. The storm that became Hurricane Barry formed on August 25, crossed Florida, and made landfall near Brownsville, Texas
