Abstract

Recent work in passive sonar has drawn interest in the potential for vertical line arrays (VLAs) deployed below the critical depth—the depth inthe deep ocean at which the sound speed below the channel axis reaches the sound speed near the surface. Such arrays can take advantage of propagation via the reliable acoustic path (RAP), which has been shown to improve thesignal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of received signals from sources at or near the surface at moderate ranges.
