Underwater acoustic communication channel characterization in the presence of bubbles and rough sea surfaces

Abstract

In this paper we model the underwater acoustic communication channel in shallow water. We put particular emphasis on the effect of the bubbles caused by wave breaks under strong winds. Underwater bubble clouds provide locally significant modifications of the sound speed field. The modified sound speed field contributes to a major transmission loss to sound… (More)
