Abstract : A joint effort between Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and Bell Telephone Laboratories to study ocean movements was carried out southwest of Bermuda. Sound transmission over a single skip-distance RSR path was maintained for a 33-hour period. At the same time internal ocean movements were monitored both at the source and at the second turning point of the sound ray path. Some correlations were observed among some of these observations.
