Abstract:

The goals are to understand the nature and the causes of acoustic signal fluctuations in the shallow water environment i.e. the physical mechanisms. This knowledge may allow better prediction of acoustic system performance and more successful exploitation of acoustic signal properties. Here, signal means any identifiable acoustic reception, including noise of unknown origin, identifiable signals from discrete sources, and intentional signals.
