Space-frequency dependence of the Horizontal structure of a sound field in the presence of intense internal waves

  • B. G. Katznel’son
  • S. A. Pereselkov


Sound propagation in a shallow sea is considered in the presence of a packet of intense internal waves. It is shown that horizontal refraction caused by these packets can lead to noticeable changes in the spectrum and spatial intensity distribution of a signal propagating approximately parallel to the wave fronts of internal wave packets.
