Abstract:

This report investigates the effect of the Gulf Stream frontal system on acoustic propagation relative to tactical sonar systems .1-20 HKZ. An oceanographic description of the Gulf Stream frontal system is included. Two ray models MPP and GRASS and one wave model PE were compared against measured acoustic data. The appendix contains ray plots and transmission loss estimated for many sourcereceiver geometries across the Gulf Stream. Author
