The results of an unclassified Workshop on Shallow Water Acoustics, sponsored by the Office of Naval Research Code 11250A, are presented. The workshop was held on April 24-26, 1991 at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and included about forty-five scientists specializing in ocean acoustics, geology, geophysics, and physical oceanography. The goal of the workshop was to determine future directions for basic research in shallow water acoustics. This report summarizes the recommendations of the workshop and includes a synopsis of the deliberations of four working groups which focus on the following specific research issues: (1) the seabed, (2) the water column and surface/Arctic, (3) analytic and numerical modeling/ambient noise, and (4) laboratory and field experiments/signal processing.

Low-frequency broadband sound source localization using an adaptive normal mode back-propagation approach in a shallow-water ocean Lin, Ying-Tsong; Newhall, Arthur E.; Lynch, James F. (Acoustical Society of America, 2012-02)A variety of localization methods with normal mode theory have been established for localizing low frequency (below a few hundred Hz), broadband signals in a shallow water environment. Gauss-Markov inverse theory is employed ...
Temporal and cross-range coherence of sound traveling through shallow-water nonlinear internal wave packets Duda, Timothy F. (Acoustical Society of America, 2006-06)Expressions governing coherence scales of sound passing through a moving packet of nonlinear internal waves in a continental shelf environment are presented. The expressions describe the temporal coherence scale at a point, ...
Acoustic ducting, reflection, refraction, and dispersion by curved nonlinear internal waves in shallow water Lynch, James F.; Lin, Ying-Tsong; Duda, Timothy F.; Newhall, Arthur E. (IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society, 2010-02-08)Nonlinear internal waves in shallow water have been shown to be effective ducts of acoustic energy, through theory, numerical modeling, and experiment. To date, most work on such ducting has concentrated on rectilinear ...
