Abstract:

The long term goals of our shallow water acoustics work are to 1 understand the nature of low frequency 10-1500 Hz acoustic propagation, scattering and noise in shallow water when strong oceanic variability is present in the form of fronts, eddies, boundary layers, and internal waves using the SW06 and QPE data, primarily and 2 begin planning a 2014-15 bottom acoustics experiment off Texas and a 2016-17 field experiment to look at the complicated boundary between deep and shallow water, i.e. the slopecanyon region. Our primary objectives this year were 1 to finish publishing our SW06 results in a JASA Special Issue , as well as in other JASA manuscripts, 2 to finish manuscripts on the QPE shallow water acousticsUncertainty work, and submit them by the end of 2012 to IEEE JOE for a Special Issue, and 3 begin 2014 bottom acoustics and 2016 shelfbreak, slope and canyon experimental planning, both on an individual basis, and in conjunction with the whole ocean acoustics community.
