Pulse propagation in a randomly perturbed ocean: Single pulse statistics
Kohler, Werner E.
MetadataShow full item record
A statistical theory of broadband single pulse propagation in a random ocean is presented. The mutual coherence function of the received signal is derived using an analysis based upon coupled mode theory. As propagation range increases, the combined effects of modal dispersion and random fluctuations spread the pulse and decompose it into a series of multiple arrivals.
