Temporal sound field fluctuations in the presence of internal solitary waves in shallow water. Academic Article uri icon


  • Temporal variations of intensity fluctuations are presented from the SWARM95 experiment. It is hypothesized that specific features of these fluctuations can be explained by mode coupling due to the presence of an internal soliton moving approximately along the acoustic track. Estimates are presented in conjunction with theoretical consideration of the shallow water waveguide.
