Abstract:

The long-term goal is to formulate and conduct a collaborative international experiment in the seas of China. Such an experiment will focus on studying the physics and variability of sound propagation and scattering that are unique to the coastal waters of the Asian Pacific region. The FY98 objectives were 1 To identify the outstanding research topics in shallow-water acoustics which are of common interest to all participating countries and which might form the basis for a collaborative US-Asia experiment in the seas of China 2 To assess the scientific approaches and logistic issues for such an experiment 3 To assess the available technology to support the field effort 4 To identify potential sites for the experimental program and investigate the environmental conditions 5 To recommend a plan of action that will lead to a comprehensive international experiment in 2000.
