Abstract : This document describes an initial analysis of acoustic data aimed at providing a characterization of ocean noise statistics. The acoustic data were collected by Naval Ocean Systems Center (NOSC) and Marine Physical Laboratory (MPL) scientists during the Various Arrays Sea Test (VAST) I experiment. This characterization of ocean noise statistics can be used in future research as a guide in selecting the noise distribution model to evaluate the performance of antisubmarine warfare detection algorithms.... Noise characterization, Filtered time series, VAST I MPL arrays, Gaussianity.
