Abstract:

Quantitatively relate the temporal and spatial properties of shallow water acoustic signals to the physical processes that cause variability in the shallow water sound speed field. Address tides, internal tides, internal waves, fine structure, surface gravity wavefields and the heterogeneous ocean bottomsubbottom. Establish the relationship between signal variability and coherent processor gain.
