Abstract:

Random variability in shallow water will induce variability in a propagating acoustic field. The long-term goal of this research is to quantify how random variability in the ocean environment translates into random variability in the acoustic field and the associated signal processing algorithms. Particular emphasis is placed on the effects of time-varying shallow water internal waves.
