  • The Effect Of Roughness On Bottom Loss From Elastic Ocean Bottoms 

    Isakson, M. J.; Chotiros, N. P. (2012-11)
    Acoustic interaction with the ocean bottom profoundly affects propagation in shallow waters. However, most forward ocean bottom interactions are modeled as if the bottom were a flat interface or use a simple model to ...
  • The Evolution Of Sediment Acoustic Models 

    Chotiros, N. P.; Isakson, M. J. (2012-11)
    Sediment acoustic models contain two connected components, the geo-physical description of the sediment and the model of acoustic processes. Geo-physical descriptors are used in the classification of sediments, and they ...
  • An integrated system for gamma-ray spectral mapping and anomaly detection 

    Reinhart, Alexander (2013-04)
    For security, environmental, and regulatory purposes it is useful to monitor wide areas for unexpected changes in radioactivity. Background radiation from naturally radioactive materials presents the largest challenge to ...

  • Quantum Contextuality As A Measurement Disturbance Effect 

    La Cour, B. R. (2009-03)
    The question of quantum contextuality in the Mermin-Peres square is considered. It is shown that a deterministic, noncontextual hidden variable model of this problem is not inconsistent with quantum mechanics, contrary to ...
  • Seabed Attenuation In Water Saturated Sands On New Jersey Continental Shelf In 50-3000 Hz Band 

    Knobles, D. P. (2010-09)
    The Shallow Water 2006 ocean acoustics experiment on the New Jersey continental shelf was designed in part to determine the frequency dependence of sound speed and attenuation for a sandy sediment in the 50-3000 Hz band. ...
  • Seabed Rough Surface Scattering Described By 2-Way Coupled Mode Approach 

    Knobles, D. P.; Sagers, J. D. (2012-11)
    A 2-way integral equation coupled mode (IECM) approach is used to examine the physics of scattering from a rough seabed. Roughness realizations for the seabed are generated from a wavenumber power spectrum whose parameterization ...
