Abstract:

The long-term goal of this project is a complete and accurate understanding of the properties of acoustic pulses sent over mesoscale to global scales. In particular, I want to understand the forward problem for calculating travel times of the early ray arrivals and late mode arrivals in long-range acoustic transmissions and to understand the sampling associated with those arrivals. The better the understanding of the forward problem, the better acoustic data can be used to understand the ocean.
