Abstract:

The long term goal of our work in the ASIAEX program is to understand the nature of low frequency 1-600 Hz acoustic propagation and scattering in shallow water when strong oceanic variability in the form of fronts, eddies, boundary layers, and internal waves is present. We are also greatly interested in the effects of geological variability, which is as important to acoustics as ocean variability in shallow water regions.
