Summary In the interest of improving ocean acoustic modeling and prediction capability, this study seeks to establish the connections between oceanographic sound speed variability and observed acoustic fluctuations from both deep and shallow water environments. The basic science of this proposal is well aligned with the interests of the Navy and Department of Defense, as undersea acoustic surveillance and remote sensing relies critically on a clear knowledge of the oceanographic sound propagation environment and on a firm understanding of the appropriate acoustic propagation physics given a particular environment..
