Abstract:

The Sand Dunes 2014 experiment was international US Taiwan oceanographic experiment sponsored by the Office of Naval Research Ocean Acoustics, Physical Oceanography, and ONR Global. This was the primary experiment, following the 2013 pilot effort, designed to focus on acoustic propagation, reverberation, and fluctuations of sound intensity of nonlinear internal waves in a large amplitude sand dune field. The experiment was conducted over an 18- day period in June 2014, with 10 moorings deployedrecovered, operating from 3 Taiwanese research vessels. This report provides technical details of the moorings, quality and quantity of the data collected during this field effort. Further analysis and results will be published as scientific journal articles.
