  • Multicarrier communication over underwater acoustic channels with nonuniform Doppler shifts 

    Li, Baosheng; Zhou, Shengli; Stojanovic, Milica; Freitag, Lee E.; Willett, Peter (IEEE, 2008-04)
    Underwater acoustic (UWA) channels are wideband in nature due to the small ratio of the carrier frequency to the signal bandwidth, which introduces frequency-dependent Doppler shifts. In this paper, we treat the channel ...
