Abstract:

This research will focus on understanding the variability of acoustic propagation in shallow water areas by examining the fluctuations of acoustic mode energies in response to oceanographic changes not related to internal waves. The long-term goal of this research is to develop an understanding of the relevant bottom-loss mechanisms more stripping and mode coupling in shallow water areas by examining mode amplitude distributions as a function of oceanographic fluctuations with geotime.
