ArticleOverview of results from the Asian Seas International Acoustics Experiment in the East China Sea(IEEE, 2004-10) Dahl, Peter H. ; Zhang, Renhe ; Miller, James H. ; Bartek, Louis R. ; Peng, Zhauhui ; Ramp, Steven R. ; Zhou, Ji-Xun ; Chiu, Ching-Sang ; Lynch, James F. ; Simmen, Jeffrey A. ; Spindel, Robert C.The Asian Seas International Acoustics Experiment (ASIAEX) included two major field programs, one in the South China Sea and the other in the East China Sea (ECS). This paper presents an overview of research results from ASIAEX ECS conducted between May 28 and June 9, 2001. The primary emphasis of the field program was shallow-water acoustic propagation, focused on boundary interaction and geoacoustic inversion. The study area's central point was located at 29/spl deg/ 40.67'N, 126/spl deg/ 49.39'E, which is situated 500 km east of the Chinese coastline off Shanghai. The acoustic and supporting environmental measurements are summarized, along with research results to date, and references to papers addressing specific issues in more detail are given.
ArticleResearch highlights from the Asian Seas International Acoustics Experiment in the South China Sea(IEEE, 2004-10) Lynch, James F. ; Ramp, Steven R. ; Chiu, Ching-Sang ; Tang, Tswen Yung ; Yang, Yiing-Jang ; Simmen, Jeffrey A.The Asian Seas International Acoustics Experiment (ASIAEX) included two major field programs, one in the South China Sea (SCS) and the other in the East China Sea (ECS). This paper summarizes results from the work conducted during April and May 2000 and 2001 over the continental shelf and slope in the northeastern South China Sea, just east of Dongsha Island (Pratis Reef). The primary emphasis of the field program was on water-column variability and its impact on acoustic propagation loss.
