Abstract:

The long-term goals of this work are to enhance the understanding of ocean processes that ultimately determine the limits of long-range acoustic transmissions, to understand the spatial and temporal behavior of low-frequency noise processes earthquakes, volcanoes, storms, biology that control the signal-to-noise ratios for long range transmission as well as to search for any correlations among these phenomena, and to improve our capabilities for acoustic detection in the ocean.
