Abstract:

The Office of Naval Research, Code 321 OA, sponsored a workshop on long-range acoustic propagation in the ocean on March 3-4, 1997. The goals of the workshop were to clan the fundamental outstanding scientific issues in the propagation and scattering of sound transmitted over several hundred to several thousand kilometers in the ocean and to identify research opportunities to improve our understanding of long-range propagation. The workshop was also designed i to promote communication and integration among the basic research investigators and between the 6.1 and 6.2 communities on long-range acoustic propagation in the ocean, ii to suggest where field experiments are needed, and iii to identify potential Navy applicability. This report summarizes the recommendations emerging from the Workshop.
