Ocean acoustics laboratory


Head:  A. G. Ostrovsky

The main areas of research

  • Theory of sound waves propagation with regard to the 3D structure of water masses and ocean floor rough
  • Acoustic monitoring of water mass dynamics in the Arctic Ocean
  • Numerical modeling of sound propagation in the ocean
  • Acoustic tomography of the ocean
  • Experiments on sound propagation, dispersion and reflection in various hydrological conditions

Estimates of auto-correlation of noise of natural origin for averaging times of
20 mins, 1 hour, 8 hours and 75 hours. Crosses mark the dispersion times,
calculated from the climatic profile of the speed of sound
