Abstract : Stochastic Models are developed to relate the statistics of sound speed fluctuations and bubble density variations as a function of sound frequency in the upper ocean. These predictions from the stochastic model have been compared with ocean experimental data of sound speed modulation in the frequency range 15 to 150 kHz, and show satisfactory agreement. Future experiments and further modification of this model are discussed. (Author)
