Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS) Experimental Data: Internal Waves, Turbulence and Sound Propagation, from Univ. Washington Applied Physics Lab (APL)

Abstract: As a primer to the Coastal Mixing and Optics (CMO) Program, the
University of Washington, Applied Physics Lab, conducted an
experiment on the effects of water turbulence and internal waves on
sound propagation.

The purpose of the experiment was to understand the effect of the
ocean water properties on the propagation of acoustic signals for
frequencies and horizontal ranges that are applicable to ... View entire text
