Abstract:

Ambient noise horizontal directionality was measured in the Northeast Pacific Ocean during the CHURCH OPAL exercise of September 1975. Results obtained from the analysis of data acquired by a towed line-array are reported. The results for frequencies dominated by shipping below 200 Hz indicate a definite north-south bias in excess of 15 dB at some frequencies. The results are similar to the CHURCH ANCHOR results obtained at the same location 2 years previously, supporting the idea that the pseudo-stationary background noise is repeatable and hence, predictable.
