The long-term scientific objective of the Quantifying, Predicting, and Exploiting QPE Uncertainty Directed Research Initiative DRI is to improve the assessment of uncertainty in observations and predictions of sound propagation in littoral regions. The objectives of this research are to understand and exploit the effects of the ocean state on acoustic propagation and detection. This work will contribute to the goals through global and regional physical ocean modeling and data assimilation. The modeling includes both model comparisons with observations, evaluating model error, and forecast and predictability studies to see the growth of uncertainty in time and space and the influences of the past ocean state on the acoustic propagation conditions on the shelf north of Taiwan.
