Study of basin scale acoustic transmissions
Nystrom, John R.

A basin-scale acoustic tomography experiment was conducted in the northeast Pacific from May 1987 to September 1987. In this thesis, the stability of the forward model is analyzed. There are large non-linearities in the changes in travel time between ray paths for the four seasons . I constructed a model in which the change in warming in the upper 100 m of the ocean was due only to changes in surface solar irradiance. The value of the surface solar irradiance anomalies necessary to cause the tomography results for warming (Spiesberger and Metzger, 1991) was computed. This value was larger than the actual value of surface solar irradiance anomaly which was computed using inputs measured by satellite (Chertock, 1989).

A study of ocean wave statistical properties using nonlinear, directional, phase-resolved ocean wave-field simulations Henry, Legena Albertha (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2010-02)In the present work, we study the statistics of wavefields obtained from non-linear phase-resolved simulations. The numerical model used to generate the waves models wave-wave interactions based on the fully non-linear ...
