Abstract: The 1991 Acoustic Surface Reverberation Experiment (ASREX 91), funded
by the Office Of Naval Research, took place in the eastern North
Pacific, about 500 km from the coast of Vancouver Island, British
Columbia. The water depth was approximately 3000 m. The Upper Ocean
Processes Group deployed three oceanographic moorings as part of an
... experiment aimed at understanding near-surface acoustic reverberation
in high sea states. Two of the moorings were dedicated to the
measurement of surface waves. The third measured meteorological and
oceanographic variables. The deployment period, during the winter of
1991-1992, was characterized by high winds and large waves.
