Abstract:

Success in probing the ocean floor acoustically depends on the ability to resolve physical features. Since this amounts to temporal resolution of the received signal, short-duration transient signals are ideal for these measurements. Procedures for propagation prediction of such acoustic transients are developed as a tool for interpreting ocean floor measurements. Some of the special features of time-dependent propagation are discussed in contrast with the usual continuous wave solutions and asymptotic solutions for the field integral are related to various types of propagation.
