Abstract:

The long-term goal is to quantitatively relate the temporal and spatial properties of shallow water acoustic signals to the physical processes that cause the temporal and spatial variability of the propagation channel sound speed field. Address internal waves, internal tides, surface gravity wavefields and the heterogeneous ocean bottomsubbottom.
