Abstract:

LONG-TERM GOALS. The long-term goals of this research are to understand the statistics of acoustic fields in deep water ocean environments. OBJECTIVES. The primary objective of this work is the development of accurate, and computationally efficient, reduced-physics acoustic propagation models for the prediction of the statistics of ocean acoustic signals in deep-water environments. A significant portion of the work deals with analyzing experimental data for acoustic field statistics and comparing them with theory. Examples of acoustic field statistics of interest are mean intensity, coherence, and intensity variance.
