Abstract : Project KIWI ONE was an experiment conducted jointly by the New Zealand Defence Scientific Establishment (DSE) and the United States Naval Underwater Systems Center (NUSC) to determine the attenuation of sound in the Pacific Ocean at frequencies below 10,000 Hz. It was determined that for frequencies of interest to Fleet sonar operation, the measured value of attenuation in the Pacific Ocean is significantly less than that measured in the Atlantic Ocean or the Mediterranean Sea.
