This paper highlights the progress during the past 30 yr in several subareas of marine geotechnical engineering, which includes pipelines, small footing structures such as jack-up rigs, gravity structures, piles, object penetration and breakout resistance, seafloor stability, and geotechnical data acquisition. The progress is illustrated using a number of significant events subsequent to World War II, such as hurricanes, planning for projects in new geographic areas, installation of specific structures, and initiation of major research.
