Abstract:

Planning of a year-round experiment on trans-Arctic acoustic transmission in the framework of the program Arctic Climate Observation using Underwater Sound ACOUS is a complex problem involving, not only, scientific and technical issues, but requiring consideration, also, of the financial aspects. According to the ACOUS proposal, the NRADs vertical array is one which can be used as the first receiving system for the year-round experiment, and this array should be deployed in the Lincoln Sea in the spring of 1996. Therefore, the main problem at the first stage of designing the experiment is to develop an optimum scheme for trans-Arctic acoustic transmissions to the Lincoln Sea.
