Abstract:

The long-term goals of this work are to enhance the understanding of ocean processes that ultimately determine the limits of long-range acoustic transmissions, to understand the spatial and temporal behavior of low-frequency noise processes earthquakes, volcanoes, storms, biology that control the signal-to-noise ratios for long range transmission as well as to search for any correlations among these phenomena, and to improve our capabilities for acoustic detection in the ocean. The objective of this project is to record individual channels from 1-2 existing SOSUS arrays in the Pacific to provide continuous acoustic time series with a bandwidth of 100 Hz.
