The enforcement of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) requires the monitoring of acoustic disturbances in the world's oceans in order to guard against the possibility of a nuclear test being hidden either in the water column itself or on a remote island. The traditional means of acoustic monitoring in the water column builds on the experience of the SOSUS project ( e.g. , Mikhalevsky, 1999), and consists of deploying hydrophones within the SOFAR channel, the layer of low acoustic… CONTINUE READING
