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.

Measurement and modeling of three-dimensional sound intensity variations due to shallow-water internal waves Badiey, Mohsen; Katsnelson, Boris G.; Lynch, James F.; Pereselkov, Serguey; Siegmann, William L. (Acoustical Society of America, 2005-02)Broadband acoustic data (30–160 Hz) from the SWARM'95 experiment are analyzed to investigate acoustic signal variability in the presence of ocean internal waves. Temporal variations in the intensity of the received signals ...
