Abstract : The first stage of a ray-tracing programme for tracing the propagation of sound energy in the ocean is described. This stage includes all of the 'mechanical part', i.e. it will trace the rays correctly through the medium, print out tables, or plot the traces on a graph-plotter. A full print-out of the ALGOL programme is included. (Author)
