Abstract : This paper discusses wave propagation in the farfield due to an underwater disturbance. The driving mechanism of the disturbance is taken to be cylindrical volume of water projected vertically under the action of ordinary forces. Particular emphasis is placed on achieving a closed form solution to Laplace's equation. The asymptotic formulae of the surface displacement are derived in the limit as r,t approaches infinity using the method of stationary phase. (Author)
