@article{Makarov2017RandomMT, title={Random matrix theory for low-frequency sound propagation in the ocean: a spectral statistics test}, author={Denis Vladimirovich Makarov}, journal={arXiv: Chaotic Dynamics}, year={2017} }

Problem of long-range sound propagation in the randomly-inhomogeneous deep ocean is considered. We examine a novel approach for modeling of wave propagation, developed by K.C.Hegewisch and S.Tomsovic. This approach relies on construction of a wavefield propagator using the random matrix theory (RMT). We study the ability of the RMT-based propagator to reproduce properties of the propagator corresponding to direct numerical solution of the parabolic equation. It is shown that mode coupling…

The transport equation for the mode amplitude coherence matrix resulting from coupled mode propagation through random fields of internal waves is examined in more detail and it is shown that the mode energy equations are approximately independent of the cross mode coherences, and that cross modecoherences and mode energy can evolve over very similar range scales.

A ray-based wave-field description is employed in the interpretation of broadband basin-scale acoustic propagation measurements obtained during the Acoustic Thermometry of Ocean Climate program's 1994 Acoustic Engineering Test, showing that the collection of the many eigenrays that form one of the resolved arrivals is nonlocal, both spatially and as a function of launch angle.

This work gives a more complete account of the approach to random matrix theory introduced for long-range acoustic propagation in the ocean and extends the methods to the construction of an ensemble of acoustic timefronts, a very efficient method for studying the statistical properties of time fronts at various propagation ranges that agrees well with propagation based on the parabolic equation.

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 and it is found that while temporal coherence has a dominant adiabatic component, horizontal and vertical coherence have more equal contributions from coupling and adiABatic effects.
