Ray calculations of ocean sound channels using a pocket programmable calculator and extended forms of the Hirsch-Carter mathematical model with tables of the incomplete beta function
MetadataShow full item record
Formulas for curve fitting and ray computation using compound models made up of several different layers are presented. Examples of computation by pocket programmable calculator on two Sargasso Sea profiles, one from the center of a cold ring eddy are given. Necessary tables of the incomplete beta-function and calculator programs are included in a supplement.

On the calculation of wind stress curl over open ocean areas from synoptic meteorological data with application to time dependent ocean circulation Welch, Christopher Slocombe (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1972-02)The method used by N. P. Fofonoff for estimating wind stress curl from surface atmospheric pressure maps is developed for use with the National Meterological Center analysis grid. A formula is developed relating the wind ...
