Abstract:

The PARKA experiments are a series of acoustic-environmental experiments conducted under the Long Range Acoustic Propagation Project LRAPP for the purpose of evaluating and improving the Navys capability to predict acoustic processes based on oceanic parameters. PARKA is an acronym for Pacific Acoustic Research Kaneohe-Alaska since these experiments are conducted in the ocean area north of Hawaii. PARKA II is designed to extend the PARKA I 1968 long range acoustic environmental model research over a larger geographic area, using a greater variety of acoustic paths, and to test the concept of utilizing a deep moored platform -- SEA SPIDER -- for supporting acoustic and environmental sensors. In addition to propagation loss measurements, the coherence of signals at pairs and at groups of receivers will be investigated as a function of spacing, time and position in the ocean.
