Abstract:

This report updates several high frequency acoustic models used in simulations and system design by Navy torpedo and mine countermeasure programs. The models presented augment and supersede those given previously in APL-UW technical note 7-79 August 1979 and its successors, APL-UW technical reports 8407 and 8907. The report addresses the interaction of high-frequency acoustic energy with the oceans volume, surface, bottom, and ice. It also addresses ambient noise generated by physical processes at the ocean surface and by biological organisms. The results are given in a form that can be exploited in simulations. The relevant fundamental experimental and theoretical research by APL and others upon which these models are based is available in the references.
