Abstract:

The long term goals of this study are to develop a firm physical and oceanographic basis for modeling propagation relevant to acoustical communications in the presence of bubbles. We identify the link between the acoustic modeling and the modeling of the hydrodynamics and bubble distribution as a key to a robust, physics based understanding of propagation in these environments. Our goal is to acquire appropriate measurements and use the data sets to test appropriate propagation models.
