Abstract:

Intensity vectors of the Pekeris model are calculated from values of acoustic pressure and particle velocity which are obtained by numerical integration. Plots of the vectors, for the cases of no-seabed, a rigid seabed and fast and slow seabeds, illustrate the potential usefulness of the intensity vector approach as an aid to understanding the physics of underwater sound propagation.
