Variability in the ocean environment can greatly impact acoustic propagation. Sonar systems often show large performance differences depending on location and oceanographic conditions. The long term goals of this research is to better understand the fundamental environmental quantities that impact shallow water acoustic propagation and to develop techniques for both characterizing the environment for better performance prediction and for mitigating the impact of environmental variability on sonar performance.
