Abstract : The long term goal is to improve ocean physical state and acoustic state predictive capabilities. The goal fitting the scope of this project is the creation of physics-based, broadly applicable and portable acoustic prediction capabilities that include the effects of internal waves, surface waves, and larger scale features, with an emphasis on continental shelf and slope regions.
