  • An integrated modal approach to surface and volume scattering in ocean acoustic waveguides 

    Tracey, Brian H. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-01)
    Acoustic propagation in the ocean can be strongly affected by small random variations in ocean properties, including rough surfaces and volume fluctuations in the ocean or seabed. Such inhomogeneities scatter part of the ...
  • Nonlinear interactions among standing surface and internal gravity waves 

    Joyce, Terrence M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1972-06)
    A laboratory study has been undertaken to measure the momentum transfer from surface to internal gravity waves in a nonlinear, resonant interaction. The interacting waves form triads for which σ1s - σ2s ± σI = 0 and κ1s - ...
