Abstract:

Software written in PV-WAVE to process data collected aboard the RV Cory Chouest during the Acoustic Reverberation Special Research Program Reconnaissance ARSRP Experiment conducted in the summer of 1991 is documented in this memorandum report. Although developed specifically for ARSRP-collected data, the software will work on any data collected aboard the RV Cory Chouest and written to 9-track tape for processing with the Off Line Processor OLP software in the beam tape BTS format - this includes beamformed and hydrophone pass-through data. Software written by the Scripps institution of Oceanography to read OLP tapes and output files in Society of Exploration Geophysicists Y SEGY format is discussed. ARSRP Signal Processing Software ASPS discussed in the report includes reading SEGY format archive tapes into ASCII format, conversion of ASCII data files to unformatted form for compact storage and fast access by PV-WAVE, and beamforming and matched filtering with PV-WAVE programs. A program to create waterfall display plots of hydrophone data, beamformed data, or matched filtered data is included.
