A theory and experimental results for sound propagation through an anisotropic shallow water environment are presented to examine the frequency dependence of the scintillation index in the presence of internal waves. The theory of horizontal rays and vertical modes is used to establish the azimutal and frequency behavior of the sound intensity fluctuations, specifically for shallow water broadband acoustic signals propagating through internal waves. This theory is then used to examine the frequency dependent, anisotropic acoustic field measured during the SWARM'95 experiment. The frequency dependent modal scintillation index is described for the frequency range of 30–200 Hz on the New Jersey continental shelf.

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. An airgun source produced broadband acoustic signals while a packet of large nonlinear internal ...
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 ...
