In this paper Creamer's [(1996). J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 99, 2825–2838] transport equation for the mode amplitude coherence matrix resulting from coupled mode propagation through random fields of internal waves is examined in more detail. It is shown that the mode energy equations are approximately independent of the cross mode coherences, and that cross mode coherences and mode energy can evolve over very similar range scales. The decay of cross mode coherence depends on the relative mode phase randomization caused by coupling and adiabatic effects, each of which can be quantified by the theory. This behavior has a dramatic effect on the acoustic field second moments like mean intensity. Comparing estimates of the coherence matrix and mean intensity from Monte Carlo simulation, and the transport equations, good agreement is demonstrated for a 100-Hz deep-water example.

Observationally constrained modeling of sound in curved ocean internal waves: Examination of deep ducting and surface ducting at short range Duda, Timothy F.; Lin, Ying-Tsong; Reeder, D. Benjamin (Acoustical Society of America, 2011-09)A study of 400 Hz sound focusing and ducting effects in a packet of curved nonlinear internal waves in shallow water is presented. Sound propagation roughly along the crests of the waves is simulated with a three-dimensional ...
Frank, Scott D.; Badiey, Mohsen; Lynch, James F.; Siegmann, William L. (Acoustical Society of America, 2004-12)To investigate acoustic effects of nonlinear internal waves, the two southwest tracks of the SWARM 95 experiment are considered.

Experimental evidence of three-dimensional acoustic propagation caused by nonlinear internal waves Frank, Scott D.; Badiey, Mohsen; Lynch, James F.; Siegmann, William L. (Acoustical Society of America, 2005-08)The 1995 SWARM experiment collected high quality environmental and acoustic data. One goal was to investigate nonlinear internal wave effects on acoustic signals. This study continues an investigation of broadband airgun ...
