Abstract

Statistics of acoustic fluctuations are predicted from Λ -ϕ values computed for an experimental geometry used by Jobst. Experimental results are then compared with the theory of sound transmission through a fluctuating ocean [Flattéet al., Sound Transmission Through a Fluctuating Ocean (Cambridge, New York, 1979)]. The stable transmission measured over a range of 450 km is consistent with theoretical prediction but there are still many uncertainties owing to lack of detailed environmental data at the time of the experiment.
