Abstract:

It is the long-term goal of this work to add a low-frequency acoustics capability to profiling floats. This capability takes the form of RAFOS tracking, wherein the float is equipped with a RAFOS receiver that processes signals transmitted from moored, low-frequency acoustic sources. This technology has been in existence for many years, but it is new to profiling floats.
