Abstract:

The long term goals are to 1 understand the impact of bubbles in the upper ocean boundary layer on the performance of underwater communications systems and their role in ambient noise generation, 2 study the impact of focusing by surface gravity waves on Doppler sonar and acoustic communications systems in shallow water, and 3 study the performance of acoustic vector sensors in very shallow water.
