The long-term scientific goal of this project is to advance understanding of three-dimensional 3D acoustic propagation in range-dependent ocean waveguides by studying propagation in a scale-model laboratory environment. The objective of this work is to generate high quality acoustic data, measured in the laboratory, that will 1 provide a benchmark standard for 3D numerical models currently being developed, 2 allow researchers to carefully investigate 3D acoustic propagation in a controlled waveguide, and 3 assist ONR in planning for future experiments in ocean environments with slopes and canyons.
