Abstract:

The frequency-time characteristics of the T phase are studied in an effort to isolate the properties of the abyssal T-phase generating mechanism. Early arrivals, or forerunners, are found to have the properties of an abyssally generated T phase. Abyssal T-phase generation is found not to be confined to regions of high latitude where the sofar channel is bounded by the ocean surface, but is found to also occur in southern latitudes where the sofar channel is bounded by a surface channel.
