Abstract : The long term goals of our shallow water acoustics work are to: 1) understand the nature of low frequency (10-1500 Hz) acoustic propagation, scattering and noise in shallow water when strong oceanic variability is present in the form of fronts, eddies, boundary layers, and internal waves (using the SW06 and QPE data, primarily) and 2) begin planning a 2018+ field experiment to look at the complicated boundary between deep and shallow water, i.e. the slope/canyon region. (Dates for any experiments are approximate.)
