Abstract:

The long-term goals are to 1 investigate and understand the role of bubbles in the upper ocean on the generation of ambient noise and their effect on the performance of underwater communications systems, 2 measure and model the scattering of sound by surface gravity waves in shallow and very shallow water to better understand their impact on the performance of Doppler sonar and underwater communications systems, and 3 study the performance of acoustic vectors sensors in very shallow water.
