Backscatter of high-frequency (200kHz) acoustic wavefields from ocean turbulence. Academic Article uri icon


  • Near space and time coincident 200-kHz acoustic backscatter and CTD measurements were taken during an interdisciplinary study of the internal wave packets that propagate through Massachusetts Bay. The data strongly support the contention that acoustic wavefields can be backscattered from turbulent mixing events (microstructure) associated with the internal wave packets.
