—The full utilization of satellite-based passive microwave imagery for weather forecasting rests on the ability to assimilate radiances into numerical weather prediction (NWP) models for highly scattering and absorbing hydrometeor states. State vector updates need to be performed rapidly enough to maintain pace with the sensor data stream and require, in(More)
Second moments of mode amplitudes at fixed frequency as a function of separations in mode number, time, and horizontal distance are investigated using mode-based transport equations and Monte Carlo simulation. These second moments are used to study full-field acoustic coherence, including depth separations. Calculations for low-order modes between 50 and(More)
—Ocean gravity waves can be rather steep and even breaking depending on wind speed. Analytical modeling of both the evolution of such strongly nonlinear waves and electromagnetic (EM) scattering from them is currently impossible. At the same time, numerical modeling of these processes poses a significant challenge in terms of the complexity of codes and(More)
Development of a new, 3D, modal theory of low-frequency, long-range sound propagation through a fluctuating ocean, including both CW and transient acoustic signals. Comparison of theoretical predictions with NPAL experimental data. OBJECTIVES To develop a 3D modal theory of broadband sound propagation though a fluctuating ocean, including analysis of the(More)
